Thousands of Vietnam youths celebrate Assumption of Mary

Some 2,300 young Catholics from six dioceses in central Vietnam attend the first Central Youth Day Gathering at the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Vang in Quang Tri province on Aug. 13-15.

During the gathering with the theme ‘Do whatever he tells you’, participants in colorful clothes celebrate the Assumption of Mary with various activities - listening to talks, attending Masses and Eucharist adoration at night, reciting the rosary, singing hymns, performing traditional dances, offering flowers to Mother Mary, and carrying a Marian statue around the shrine.

The young people came from Hue Archdiocese and five other dioceses of Ban Me Thuot, Da Nang, Kontum, Nha Trang, and Qui Nhon.

The next gathering will be held in Ban Me Thuot Diocese in 2024.
