It has served many immigrants and refugee families throughout the years. Rev. Minh Xuan Vu serves as the church priest.
The Vietnamese service is Saturdays from 10 to 11 a.m. There is also an English mass on Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. and an 8:30 a.m. mass on Sunday.
“Everyone is welcome to attend our church,” Trung Nguyen said.
