Philadelphia parish celebrates Year of the Tiger

Vietnamese parishioners at Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Philadelphia recently rang in the Lunar New Year with a Mass and a celebration.

2010 is the Year of the Tiger according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

The Redemptorists have served Visitation, which also has a large Hispanic population, for about three years.
