Subdued celebration marks Migration Mass 2021

But representatives of various cultural groups still gathered at cathedral for Epiphany feast

MIAMI | The COVID-19 pandemic prevented a more expansive celebration but representatives of cultural groups from throughout the archdiocese did gather as usual on the feast of the Epiphany to celebrate the annual Migration Mass with Archbishop Thomas Wenski.

The Mass acknowledges the plight of refugees around the world and celebrates the contribution of immigrants to the United States. The celebration is usually followed by multicultural music, dances and sharing of traditional foods, something that could not happen this year.
