Bienvenidos a La Divina Pastora

“We will no longer say migrants or refugees, but we shall refer to them as our brothers and sisters.” These were the words expressed by Fr Alan Hall, parish priest at the La Divina Pastora RC Church September 29 as the parish community hosted a bilingual Mass for their Venezuelan brothers and sisters to officially welcome them to their parish and by extension the community of Siparia.

The colours of the Venezuelan national flag—red, blue and yellow were most present in the stunning floral arrangements that adorned the altar adding to the warm and welcoming ambience.

The readings and Prayers of the Faithful were read both in English and Spanish by members of the Confirmation Class of 2020. The choir also sang hymns in Spanish, including ‘Señor ten piedad’ (Lord Have Mercy) and ‘Hosanna en el cielo’ (Hosanna in the Highest).
