3rd Annual Assyrian Chaldean Food Festival
St. Matthew Catholic Church, Ceres_CA
By: Basil Aboona




Once again our congregation and community were blessed with a joyful and successful Assyrian Chaldean Food Festival of Saint Matthew’s Catholic Church that took place on September 25 and 26, of 2010. Father Michael Barota, the Parish Pastor, recited an opening prayer and delivered a welcome message in the name of our Diocesan Bishop Mar Sarhad Yawsip Jammo, and greetings from Bishop Mar Bawai Soro. He then extended his special thanks to all sponsors, volunteers, musicians, and guests at the festival for their participation and support. Following Fr. Michael’s speech, another welcome speech was given by Basil Aboona, the Chairman of the Festival.
Two famous musicians, Harout Eskenian and Fayez Merza, along with the famous singer Edward Esha, provided beautiful music and songs. We also enjoyed an energetic performance by Enwiya Youkhana, a young singer who touched the hearts of those attending the festival with his beautiful voice. 11 of our parish youth members along with 3 youth members of St. Thomas Assyrian Chaldean Catholic Church (Turlock-CA) performed delightful Assyrian Chaldean folkloric dances, twice each day.
On both days, Hundreds of guests including non-Assyrians Chaldeans enjoyed a verity of our ethnic food and pastries as the aroma filled the air, our beautiful Assyrian Chaldean folkloric music and dances, and our loving and warm hospitality. Many guests also visited the booths of 11 different vendors participating in this festival. Other festival activities included Backgammon Tournament, raffle prizes drawn on Sunday, and games for the kids.


On Sunday September 26th, Fr. Barota celebrated the Holy Mass in the morning and following that, the festival activities resumed for the second day. We were very pleased to receive Fr. Anderaws Gorgis Toma, the new pastor of St. Mary Assyrian Chaldean Catholic Church in Campbell. He joined us on Sunday and gave an encouraging greeting and offered blessings to our congregation and those attending the festival. We look forward to seeing Fr. Toma again at St. Matthew’s Parish and wish him and his congregation prosperity in their service to the Lord and one another.
