Catholic parishes across England and Wales have celebrating Peace Sunday this weekend, sharing the 2015 peace message of Pope Francis: 'Slaves no more, but brothers and sisters'.
In the worldwide Catholic Church, the World Day of Migrants and Refugees is celebrated in January each year, having been instituted in 1914 by Pope Pius X. In 2015 it falls on 18 January, which is also the Church's World Peace Day (and for many the first Day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity).
