St. Cyprian Parish in West Philadelphia hosts many immigrants from West Africa. The church was the site of a special Mass on June 20 celebrating 10 years of Nigerian Igbo community’s presence in the parish. Archbishop Charles Chaput attended the Mass celebrated by Igbo clergy and Archbishop Valerian Okeke of the Archdiocese of Onitsha, Nigeria.
