(ansa) – milan, 23 May – was celebrated this morning in dman by the archbishop mario delpini the Mass for the solemnity of pentecoste that coincided with the feast of the Gentiles and involved the representatives of the 25 communities of migrants present in diocese. The 14 lay representatives identified in the various pastoral areas to be part of the consultation are chosen – among Italian and foreign citizens – on the basis of their sensitivity and experience on the issues of immigration, interculturality and integration, as well as their actual inclusion in the Ambrosian pastoral tissue.
