It’s now officially the year of the Rooster as Asian Americans celebrate the new lunar year. Here in the Diocese of Immigrants Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio is also taking part in the festivities- even participating in a special ceremony called “waking the lion.” Katie Engesser reports from Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Sunset Park where the celebrations took place.
