The Haitian community at St. William Parish gathered for Mass in their Haitian Creole language on Sunday, Aug. 7 at St. William Church, Rising Sun Avenue and Devereaux Street in Northeast Philadelphia. Father Alfred Lauricien, a priest of the Oblate Missionaries of Mary Immaculate, celebrated the weekly 5:30 p.m. liturgy for the congregation. In addition to St. William’s, the other parish in the Philadelphia Archdiocese that regularly celebrates Sunday Mass in Haitian Creole is St. Cyril of Alexandria Parish, East Lansdowne.
