The Vietnam Committee for Solidarity of Catholics (VCSC) held a solemn ceremony in Hanoi on December 18 to mark the upcoming Christmas.
Priest Nguyen Cong Danh, VCSC President cum Vice President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee (VFFCC), said that 2009 is the first year the VCSC has implemented the renewal resolution set out in the fifth Congress of representatives of Vietnamese Catholics.
Over the past year, Vietnamese Catholics have actively and effectively participated in the nation’s movements, especially charitable activities, he said.
The VCSC has been working hard to raise funds for disabled children to help them overcome difficulties in their lives, he added.
VFFCC Vice President Nguyen Trong Kim urged the VCSC to continue contributing to the country’s movements and mobilise Catholics nationwide to well implement the Party and State’s policies and action plans set by the 7th VFF Congress.
