Chinese New Year, Year of the Rooster: Was commemorated with Mass and all pageantry thereto, as pictured here, at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Feb. 4. Bishop Ignatius Wang, now retired but born in China and long a priest and auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, was principal celebrant and homilist. “The theme of the liturgy is about joy and happiness based on what Jesus proclaimed in the Beatitudes,” Divine Word Father Peter Zhai, a concelebrant at the Mass and director of Chinese ministry for the archdiocese told Catholic San Francisco. A banquet followed the liturgy in the cathedral’s downstairs halls.
