BRISBANE’S annual Multicultural Mass is a snapshot of the future of the Catholic Church in Australia, Archbishop Mark Coleridge said.

Archbishop Coleridge concelebrated at the annual Mass at St Stephen’s Cathedral last Sunday to mark the end of Migrant and Refugee Week. More than 1200 people attended.

Evangelisation Brisbane director Clyde Cosentino said the “magnificent” Mass was a “microcosm” of the ethnic diversity within the archdiocese.

“At the cathedral was a microcosm of the Church in the Archdiocese of Brisbane, with its myriad of cultural communities showcasing all different ways of worship,” Mr Cosentino said.

He said ethnic and cultural communities within Brisbane archdiocese were continuing to grow in large numbers.

“That’s why this Mass is very important in the archdiocese, because as the Archbishop said, a multicultural nation is where we are headed in the future,” he said.
