Delta parish celebrates harvest on Marian feast

Festival connects parishioners to cultural roots
Women dressed in saris serve traditional dishes from Mangalore, Karnataka, during Monthi Fest at Immaculate Conception Parish in Delta Sept. 7. The celebration, which combines a harvest festival with the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, has had more participants every year since 2004. Photo submitted to BCC.
While Thanksgiving may be near for many Canadian families, the local Mangalorean Catholic community celebrated a harvest festival in a flourish of flowers in September. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
