Love the Stranger

On World Day of Migrants and Refugees, we are reminded of the 24 principles outlined in the 'Love the Stranger' document.

Love the Stranger places the human being at the heart of our pastoral outreach, looking beyond statistics and policies to the person – each with a name, a face and a story.

The document offers 24 guiding principles and has been endorsed by the Holy See, COMECE, CAFOD, CSAN and Caritas Social Action Network members.
