Thousands of Catholics from Southern California and across the country joined Archbishop José H. Gomez in a virtual celebration of the annual Day in Recognition of All Immigrants on Sunday, September 20.
At two Masses, in English and Spanish, livestreamed from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown LA, Archbishop Gomez reminded the faithful that “we belong to God. He gives us life so that we can serve Christ, so that we can labor and bear fruit in his vineyard, which is the Kingdom that he has planted and is growing in the world.
“God is One and the human race that he created is one! But he creates us as “many” — many races, many nationalities, many languages, and ethnic cultures,” he said during his homily.
