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.

Prayer for Vietnamese Vocations

Heavenly Father, Lord of the harvest, call forth vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life from our diocese and our families. Inspire men to imitate Christ the Eternal High Priest in sacrificial service to Your Church. Move the hearts of men and women to offer themselves wholly to You in poverty, chastity and obedience. Send them as laborers for Your harvest. Inspire the faithful to support them with prayer and sacrifice. Raise up holy families who foster openness to Your call. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
