Five Things To Remember On Jan. 8

1. Pope Francis offered prayers today for the victims of the Paris attack. He also tweeted "#PrayersforParis"

2. Did you know that the USCCB's Department of Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) settles 30% of all all refugees resettled into the U.S. during 2011? As National Migration Week continues, learn more about the work of the MRS and how you can support it.

3. Help young people in your community learn more about how faith inspires us to address poverty in our communities. Invite your parish and schools in your area to become involved in the Multi-Media Youth Arts Contest (deadline March 31), sponsored by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.

4. An upcoming trip to Asia for Pope Francis highlights his concern for the continent, the Vatican said.

5. God loves you.
