Aug. 19 is World Humanitarian Day — a day set aside to pay tribute to aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service, and for the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities, a day to lift up in prayer people affected by crises around the world. We encourage you to reflect upon your call to be your neighbor’s keeper and to pray for those who suffer as well as those striving to serve them.The Catholic Health Association has developed a prayer, which is yours to use and share widely.

There is a 2017 campaign in which you can also participate.
