On July 25th, 2015, the Vietnamese Community gathered at the Our Lady of Lasalette Shrine for their annual pilgrimage celebration. For the past two years, this beautiful celebration has fallen on the weekend celebrating the grandparents of Jesus, St. Anne and St. Joachim, giving the Vietnamese community double the celebration.
