Tonight I attended the AMAFHH Iftar, whose tag reads “Multicultural & Proud of it”. An evening awash with colour, food and beautiful company, including Teresa Defazio and VMC Chair, Helen Kapelos. 

Helen shared a candid presentation of her shared practice of faith rituals, like Lent, symbolising ties to her identity. All speakers echoed the gains to be had from a diverse community whose beliefs of peace and understanding enrich our society.
