Annual Diocesan Commemoration of the Feast of the Vietnamese Martyrs
by: San Diego Catholic Diocese
San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy joins the Vietnamese Catholic community for the annual diocesan commemoration of the feast of the Vietnamese Martyrs.
The celebration honors the sacrifices of the many Catholics martyred for their faith in Vietnam in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, but especially the 117 martyrs canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1988. Procession starts at 2 p.m., with Mass afterward.
