SAN DIEGO — Despairing of the tension between races and cultures?

Step into the diocese’s Pentecost Mass and experience unity among all peoples. In fact, that’s the name of this event: Mass for All Peoples, to be held on Saturday, June 4, at Cathedral Catholic High School.

The event brings together Catholic cultural communities present in the diocese, with roots in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa. Their members wear native attire, speak different languages and express their faith in distinct ways. But they are united by their love of God.

It all begins at 10 a.m. outside of the school’s gym, where a variety of music will be presented. A procession of cultures is at 10:45, to be followed by the Mass at 11 in the gym, with Bishop Robert McElroy. It’s a joyful feast of colors, sounds and faith traditions.

A literal feast follows, starting around 12:15 p.m. in the school’s plaza, where the communities will share their traditional foods and perform music and dances.

Everyone is welcome to attend this family-friendly event.
