Celebrating multiculturalism

The cultures and traditions of Catholics from around the world were celebrated at the annual Multicultural Mass held in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral on August 25. This year on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees people were asked to consider their own fears and hopes, and reflect on how God is encouraging and inviting us, who are we becoming, and what kind of society are we preparing for those who come after us. Following the Mass, food and entertainment from different countries were showcased, including a beautiful dancing display by girls from the Albanian community.
