Chinese Community Christmas and Thanksgiving celebrations

I had the great blessing of joining the Chinese Community on both Thanksgiving day and Christmas day. It is always wonderful to see the community celebrate together. Like many of our ethnic communities, the Chinese people most often do not have much of their family here in the United States and as such view the Church community as their home. For them it is natural to spend a good part of the holidays with the parish community. At these gatherings there is always plenty of faith, food and fun. I am always grateful for their hospitality.

I’d like to share a few pictures from both celebrations
