The second anniversary of the Swahili-language Mass in the Archdiocese of Louisville was marked with a special liturgy Aug. 21 at St. Martin de Porres Church, 3112 West Broadway. About 250 people, more than half of whom were children and young adults, gathered for Mass with Apostle of Jesus Father Deogratias Ssamba and Archbishop Shelton J. Fabre. The archbishop offered encouraging words on the day’s readings and reminded the congregants that they have a parish home at St. Martin de Porres,  according to the Office of Multicultural Ministry.

At the liturgy, Sophie Muzomwe, a high school sophomore, spoke with M. Annette Mandley-Turner, executive director of OMM. Sophie is a liturgical dancer at St. Martin de Porres Church and a member of the youth group. (Photo Special to The Record by James Bennett)
