District Masses, cathedral tours

“It’s important to understand what hospitality means. It is simply seeing to the one who is in need,” said Fr Peter Tan, from the Church of St Michael.
Hospitality is about serving the person who “comes to us knocking at our door”, and even going “out of the way to see to their need,” said Fr Peter.
He was giving the homily at a Mass for City District parishes at the cathedral on Feb 15 as part of the cathedral’s 12 days of celebrations.
The theme for the Mass was hospitality.
After the Mass, prayer leaders led groups to pray at the various gardens of the cathedral. The congregation was earlier given prayer cards and candles for prayers. Tours of the cathedral were also conducted.
The other districts of the archdiocese held Masses on other days with themes such as mercy, generosity, compassion, and witness and service.
