Many cultures represented at annual Migration Mass

Archbishop Thomas Wenski joins various archdiocesan cultural and ethnic groups in celebration

MIAMI | Archbishop Thomas Wenski celebrated the annual Migration Mass on the feast of the Epiphany, Jan. 6, 2020, at St. Mary Cathedral.

The Mass kicked off the celebration of Migration Week, Jan. 5-11, in the U.S. Catholic Church. This year’s theme is “Promoting a Church and a World for All,” which reflects the need for Catholics to be inclusive and welcoming to everyone, especially immigrants and refugees. It is a call to stand in solidarity with and care especially for those who are excluded and marginalized.

Members of the Archdiocese of Miami’s many cultural groups attended the Mass wearing ethnic attire. The groups included Poles, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indians, Koreans, Filipinos, Brazilians, Haitians and Hungarians.

At a reception after Mass, some of the groups served native dishes and performed folkloric dances.
