Vietnamese Catholic Community of Hoan Thien's Marian Congress

Over the past decade, the Redemptorists of Oceania have welcomed several new vocations from Vietnam. These young men serve in parishes and apostolates from Perth to Melbourne in a variety of roles.

One way in which they have been a blessing to the Church has been their work at the Vietnamese Catholic Community of Hoan Thien in Keysborough, Victoria.

On May 13th the Vietnamese Catholic Community of Hoan Thien held a Marian Congress to coincide with the celebrations of the 100 year anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. The Congress ran from 9 30 AM till 7 PM and was attended by over 3000 with a procession led by the Bishop of Parrmatta, Most Rev Vincent Long OFM.
