On Sunday, January 18, 2015, the Archdiocese of Toronto celebrated the World Day of Migrants and Refugees with a special mass and reception. The mass was held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Toronto, and was celebrated by The Most Reverend Bishop Wayne Kirkpatrick, Honorary Trustee for the York Catholic District School Board.

“Church without frontiers; Mother to all” was the theme chosen by Pope Francis for the 101st World Day of Migrants and Refugees. Simon Yuen, Grade 8 Teacher at San Lorenzo Ruiz CES, was the Youth Choir Director for the mass and two Grade 8 students from the same Markham school, Angelo M. and Aaron E., sang in the youth choir for the mass.
