A Mass was held at St. Therese Chinese Church in Chinatown on Feb. 2 as a special celebration of the Lunar New Year, which started Jan. 31.
Father Francis Li hands a red envelope to men performing the lion dance prior to Mass. A red envelope usually contains a monetary gift and is given during holidays or special occasions. The parish's envelope contained a card with information about the parish.
