On this day we celebrated our different traditions, languages, customs, music etc but most of all our common faith in Jesus Christ. We are blessed to be part of one of the largest multi-cultural community not only in Reading but in the diocese. The day began with a procession of flags. During the homily Fr. John named the different nations represented during mass. After mass a buffet of the FOODS OF THE WORLD was served on a day basking in glorious sunshine.
