The country’s largest archdiocese has urged people to give generously to a fund to build new seminary buildings to meet increasing needs of priestly formation.

Cardinal Jean Baptiste Pham Minh Man of Ho Chi Minh City said the seminary facilities built in 1863 by members of the Foreign Missionary Society of Paris (MEP) are in poor condition and could not provide accommodation and studies for students.

“I would like to ask local Catholics to donate to the construction on the first Sunday of [each] month until the construction is finished,” he suggested in a letter that was read in 200 local churches last weekend.
