Vietnamese Catholic Community

Our diocesan Vietnamese Catholics are served by the first National Parish in the U.S., Holy Martyrs of Vietnam, founded in 1979. The Vietnamese Our Lady of LaVang Community serves families west of Arlington. Annually, both communities gather and celebrate the Vietnamese New Year, known as Têt, with large Masses and festivals.
