“Displaced Like Jesus”: Two Advent Activities

Advent Calendar

This Advent Calendar activity takes us on a special path towards Christmas – a path through the various stages of the campaign for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees that was dedicated to internally displaced people. Every day, starting on the first day of December, open the corresponding little box and join us in the period of Advent as we turn our thoughts to migrants, refugees and other displaced people, especially in this difficult period of pandemic.

Advent Activity

Who are internally displaced people? Even though the Message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2020 was dedicated to them, little is known about them. Yet they number in the millions. The Migrants and Refugees Section has created this activity in order to deepen understanding of the lives of internally displaced people. Take a close look, and invite your friends, your colleagues, your parish to join you! All you need are dice and a token for each player on Start. The first player to reach the End is the winner. Special boxes (explained below) will test your knowledge, so when you finish the activity, you are sure to know more about internally displaced people and the activities of the Church to help them.
