The seventh annual Mass and Fiesta/Harambee in honor of the feast day of St. Martin de Porres will begin at 7 p.m. on Nov. 3 at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 46th and Illinois streets, in Indianapolis.

Father John McCaslin, the pastor of St. Anthony and Holy Trinity parishes in Indianapolis, will be the main celebrant for the liturgy.

Sponsored by the archdiocesan Multicultural Ministry Commission, the Fiesta/Harambee draws Catholics from central and southern Indiana together to remember in worship and song the Peruvian saint who is considered to be the patron of interracial justice.

A reception at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish will follow the Mass. Those planning to attend the Mass and reception are invited to bring a favorite ethnic snack to the free Fiesta/Harambee.
