Several participants will dress in native attire and process in the opening procession behind banners that display their country of origin. Additionally, 7 choirs will provide multilingual music throughout the Mass. Scripture readings and prayers will be proclaimed in eight different languages including Malayalam, Tagalog, Swahili, Korean, Mende, Gaelic, Indonesian, and Portuguese. Including English, 14 different languages will be spoken or sung at the Cultural Heritage Mass this year.

The Cultural Heritage Mass is sponsored by the Office for Pastoral Care for Migrants and Refugees. All are welcome to attend.
