The Arlington Mission Office spread the word about our friends in Bánica on Saturday as we were invited once again to participate in the 4th Annual Arlington Diocese Multicultural Mass and Fair at All Saints Catholic Church in Manassas. Bishop Paul S. Loverde presided over a multilingual Mass attended by representatives of the many cultural and ethnic groups that populate our diocese. His Excellency pointed out that we come from many backgrounds but are united in one faith. Diocesan Mission Director Rev. Patrick L. Posey was one of many priests concelebrating.

After the Mass the Multicultural Fair in the All Saints Activities Center allowed the faithful to peruse information tables about the different cultural communities at our various parishes including the Korean Community, the Vietnamese Community, the Ghanaian Community, the Cameroonian Community,  just to name a few! Below are a few photos from this wonderful annual event. The All Saints Spanish Children’s Choir, the Filipino Community, and the Cameroonian Community delighted all with cultural performances.
