Sunday 19 November is the 7th World Day of the Poor
The 7th celebration of World Day of the Poor will be marked on Sunday 19 November 2023. This year's motto is taken from the book of Tobit: "Do not turn your gaze away from the poor person" (Tb 4,7). To mark the occasion, Pope Francis will preside over Mass in St. Peter's Basilica at 10am. To attend the Mass, please complete the ticket booking form on the Dicastery website.
The pastoral aid prepared for the World Day is also available on the site, downloadable for free in various languages.
