The Vietnamese Community of the Diocese of Oakland will celebrate the 26-year anniversary of the Vietnamese Martyrs' canonization at 11:30 a.m. Nov. 23 at St. Anthony Parish, 1535 16th Ave., Oakland.
There will be two parts before the Eucharistic liturgy, said Sister Rosaline Nguyen, LHC, director of the Vietnamese Pastoral Center. In honor to the martyrs there will be a skit performed by a Vietnamese youth group, followed by the procession around the church. There will be a reception and entertainment in the gym after the liturgy.
Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, and Bishop Emeritus John S. Cummins will both participate. For more information, contact Sister Rosaline, 510-628-2153, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
