A procession including representatives of 30 ethnic groups in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia led the way into the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul before the start of the 19th annual Cultural Heritage Mass celebrated by Archbishop Charles Chaput on Saturday, March 19. A vibrant spirit of worship was supported by eight choirs and about 700 Catholics from every walk of life in the world. Masses are celebrated in 20 languages every Sunday in archdiocesan parishes.
