Christ the King, Christ the Refugee
Several months ago, we designated Sunday, Nov. 22 as Refugee Sunday for our mission area, as we had not observed this day earlier in the year. This Sunday is Christ the King Sunday and next week is Thanksgiving, two days that heavily feature refugees; we had no way of knowing at the time that the subject of refugees would be at the forefront of conversations on this very day.
Bishop Kevin published an early NTNLifelines on this topic, if you would like to reference it this Sunday.
If you have not yet done so, please also visit refugeesunday.lirs.org and find the resources available there.
