World Day of the Poor: three ways you can join us
20 October 2019
Pope Francis has declared Sunday 17 November 2019 to be the third World Day of the Poor.
On World Day of the Poor we are called to open our arms with love for people living in poverty and to recognise Christ in our sisters and brothers throughout the world.
What your parish can do
Here are three ways you can celebrate this special day in your parish, school or university chaplaincy.
Pray with us
On this day we are invited to offer friendship, solidarity and welcome to the poorest of our sisters and brothers. As we reach out with love and support, let us hold all members of our global family in our prayers.
Find inspiring liturgies
Take a look at these liturgy resources for your community, brought together by Caritas Social Action Network (CSAN). These include powerful stories, bidding prayers, homily notes, and posters for your parish or university chaplaincy.

Our World Gifts are examples of concrete assistance being given by our partners to families in need right now.
