A representative of the Tongan community, left, presents the bread and wine to Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, while the Unity Chorus sang a traditional Fijian hymn, "Na Madrai Oqo," meaning "This Bread." "The Church is One," the bishop said in his homily. "This is our home. This is where we truly belong." A young member of the Nigerian-Igbo community, right, carries a Blessed Virgin Mary icon. More than 2,000 Catholic Nigerians make their home in the Bay Area.
