Though a Saturday, the Cathedral was packed to capacity and the liturgy was well prepared and almost everybody actively participated.

During Holy Mass selected Christians from each parish were honoured for their contribution in the work of evangelization. They received a Certificate and the Bible.

In conclusion the Year of Faith has helped us grow as a family of God, united and strong in faith. It is a year to remember.
