Worshippers leaving our morning Masses were treated to singing and drums from a group from Ecuador, directing them to our International Fiesta. Arranged by Fr Bednar in aid of our twin parish in Guayaquil, Ecuador, the celebrations featured the talents of many of the ethnic communities in our parish. Food, dance and singing reflected the diverse community of Westminster, and helped create a sense of parish among the crowds who attend the Cathedral.
With music and dancing in the Cathedral Hall, a large crowd gathered to enjoy the festival, and support Blessed Mother Theresa Parish, and their programme for feeding hungry children.
In the foreground of the festively bedecked Cathedral Hall stands Fr Augustine Hoey, while our sub-Administrator, Fr Christopher Tuckwell, can be glimpsed, Roman-senator fashion, in the background.
