Faith in Action
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.
We look forward to hosting you in Rome to offer our thanks, to celebrate our Faith in Action, and to share a moment of reflection.
