Catholicism in Viet Nam

About 6.6% of Viet Nam’s population of about 97,000,000, or 6.4 million people, are Catholic.  While most are in central and southern Viet Nam, there are still some in the North.  Most Vietnamese identify themselves as Buddhist.  This photo was taken in Hà Đông, an urban district in the southwestern part of of Hà Nội.  Follow this link to read a 2018 post I wrote entitled Catholicism, the Vietnamese Language, & Student Recruitment in Viet Nam.
