.- The Vatican announced today that it will be holding two press conferences at the end of the week: one to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Pontifical Commission for the Cultural Patrimony of the Church and the other to present the Pope's message for the 96th World Day of Migrants and Refugees.

On Thursday Nov. 26 in the Holy See Press Office, Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi and Francesco Buranelli, respectively president and secretary of the Pontifical Commission for the Cultural Patrimony of the Church, will hold a press conference announcing the 20th anniversary of their dicastery.

This Pontifical Commission presides over the guardianship of the historical and artistic patrimony of the entire Church including works of art, historical documents, books, museums artifacts, libraries and archives. Its purpose is to safeguard these items and promote a greater awareness of them within individual churches. 

On Friday Nov. 27, a presentation of the Holy Father's Message for the 96th World Day of Migrants and refugees will take place. The day will be celebrated on Jan. 17, 2010 and it's theme will be “Underage migrants and refugees.”

Earlier this year in January, Pope Benedict XVI spoke on the 95th World Day in honor of the Pauline Year and how St. Paul was a migrant himself, and an apostle of all peoples.

Also participating in Friday's press conference are Archbishop Antonio Maria Veglio, Archbishop Agostino Marchetto and Msgr. Novatus Rugambwa, president, secretary and under secretary respectively of the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant Peoples.
