Great influx of young people and migrants to Museum of Peace to celebrate the World Day of Migrants and Refugees, wanted by the Church since 1914. It has always been an opportunity to show concern for the different categories of vulnerable people on the move, to pray for challenges and raising awareness of the opportunities offered by migration.
Pope Francis chose the theme "It's not just about migrants" to show us our weaknesses and make sure no one is left out of society, whether it's a long-time resident citizen, or a newcomer.
President Capasso recalled the thirty-year commitment of the Mediterranean Foundation and its staff in favor of migrants, summarized in the Museum's emotional journey entitled "Voices of Migrants".
Moments of prayer with the celebration of Holy Mass took place on the ground floor of the Museum in the Chapels dedicated to Don Bosco, Mother Mazzarello, Padre Pio, Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope Giovanni Paolo II.
The Islamic communities have held moments of common prayer in the Peace Museum Mosque
