Early in June we celebrated the feast of Pentecost, often referred to as the ‘birthday of the Church’, when Peter and the other apostles presented the Good News of Christ to the Jerusalem crowds who heard them speaking in their own language. So we could say that, right from the beginning, the character of the Church has been multicultural!
More than 400 people from different cultures and nationalities celebrated the 104th World Day of Migrants and Refugees at a Multicultural Mass in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral on Sunday August 26.
The importance of caring for the environment and respecting different faiths were just two of the messages highlighted during the pastoral visitation to the Clearview-Kilburn parish in June.
Catholic schools throughout the Archdiocese held various events and activities to celebrate Harmony Day in March.
