Every June, we come together for World Refugee Day to celebrate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of families forced to flee their homes. Imagine — more than 65 million people have been forcibly displaced around the world and more than half are children.

Catholic Charities along with hundreds of volunteers in Cincinnati welcome and resettle refugees. Through our actions, we show that there is hope beyond borders.

Join us in showing solidarity for our newest neighbors. This relaxed, family-focused event includes a potluck meal. We ask guests to bring a covered dish to share.

What to Expect

Here’s how the day will unfold:

  • 11:00 am – Check-in begins
  • 11:30 am – Welcome & Blessing
  • 12:00 pm – Lunch
  • 3:00 pm – Event concludes

Games, music and cultural performances throughout the day. If you’d like to volunteer at this event, sign up here.

We are grateful for the support of presenting sponsors for this event, the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati and the Ursulines of Cincinnati. Additional event partners are the Jewish Community Relations Council and Jancoa.
