Today we celebrate our different traditions, languages, customs, music and culture.  We also celebrate our common Faith in Jesus Christ.  As a Parish we are blessed to be a very large multicultural community here in Reading.  Normally today we would have begun with a procession of flags and during the homily I would try to name the different nations – sixty or seventy of them – which comprise our Parish.  Unfortunately it is not possible due to the lockdown; however we will try to give an international flavour to the online Mass on Sunday.
