2019 World Migrant Sunday

It’s Not Just About Migrants But About All Of Us.

As ACMI and the church in Singapore, we celebrate Migrant Sunday in Singapore on 22 September.

On this occasion, we celebrate the lives of Migrants and their presence.

“You must love your neighbour as yourself.” (Mark 12:31)

This year, Pope Francis invites us to reflect not just on the plight of the migrants and their struggles. But to open our minds, reflect and address our own wounds, hurts and pain first before responding to the needs of our migrant brothers and sisters.

Because: “It is not only the cause of migrants that is at stake; it is not just about them, but about all of us, and about the present and future of the human family.”

We invite you to come on this journey with us for the next 10 days, to reflect on the message of the Holy Father.

Some of the questions that you are about to experience will challenge you and perhaps be hard to respond to.

It will perhaps unleash shame, hurts and disappointments of the past. But we urge you not to be afraid.

For the Lord invites us to look at our wounds and allow them to be a source of healing to others.

Stay tuned for the reflection questions for the next 10 days and share with us your reflections!
