The fragrant aroma of international food filled the air at the 4th annual Comboni Missionaries "Taste of Mission" on Saturday, Aug. 24, at the Cincinnati Comboni Mission Center. Several hundred people stopped by to try food from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Italy.
Guests sampled international beers and wines, watched live entertainment from countries where the Comboni Missionaries serve and enjoyed Raffle Baskets and cultural games.
A mission market offered an opportunity to purchase items brought from our missionaries serving in Africa. Some of the outstanding entertainment included the Kokorodza Marimba Ensemble from the Kings Local School District, the Columbia Viva Dancers, and the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick glee club, to name a few.
Several of our missionaries were on hand to talk to people about the history and work of the Comboni Missionaries and to offer tours of the Mission Museum.
This event was made possible with the generous support of sponsors, volunteers, local Hispanic ministry groups and area businesses. All event proceeds directly support the work of our missionaries in the United States and overseas.
