Event description
Join us for an event in Rome to celebrate our shared mission to accompany, serve, and advocate for the forcibly displaced.

About this Event

As we approach the 40th anniversary of JRS next year, we invite the religious congregations who are partners in the mission of JRS to join us for an event in Rome, where we would like to acknowledge and extend our gratitude for their service to refugees around the world.

With 70.8 million people forcibly displaced, now more than ever, we are called into shared mission and ministry to stand with refugees. Since the founding of JRS in 1980, we have been profoundly blessed by the partnerships with religious men and women who have shared in the mission to accompany, serve and, advocate for the forcibly displaced. Fr Arrupe’s belief that “God is calling us through these helpless people” continues to inspire and energise us. As the challenge of this work has grown, so has the support for JRS – and we are grateful.

The day will include presentations from religious who are working and supporting missions in the field, as well as breakout sessions focusing on JRS's expertise in the areas of reconciliation and education.

Please find the draft programme here.
