Migrant and Refugee Sunday

Members of Adelaide’s multicultural communities came together to celebrate Migrant and Refugee Sunday on September 24. Celebrated by Vicar General Fr Dean Marin in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral, the Mass focused on the theme for the 109th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, ‘Free to choose whether to migrate or to stay’.
