Once a year, at the Feast of Pentecost, all Catholic cultural communities of the diocese come together in a vibrant, multilingual Mass that celebrates their faith and traditions.
The diocese held the inaugural one in 2018 at Good Shepherd Parish, attended by about 1,500 faithful. The next year, the Mass and festival moved to a larger venue, Cathedral Catholic High School, where more than 2,000 turned out.
This celebration continued in the Covid era, when the communities came together online for the Pentecost Mass of 2020, live-streamed and viewed nearly 5,000 times.
In 2021, as the pandemic ebbed, the Mass returned to Good Shepherd Parish, this time celebrated outdoors.
Indoors, outdoors or online, the diocese’s Pentecost Mass brings together all people to Gather As One human family, united by God’s love.
