On August 2nd, 2014, the Executive Board of Tay Ninh province’s Vietnam Buddhist Sangha held the closing ceremony for the summer retreat course 2014 (B.E. 2558) at Phước Thành pagoda in An Tinh commune, Trang bang district. 

The Cao Dai religion

At the beginning of the twentieth century, the colonial regime and the Nguyễn feudal court reinforced their exploitation and oppression of the Vietnamese people. 

Buddhism

Buddhism was brought to Vietnam about two thousand years ago. Luy Lâu (now in the Thuận Thành District, Bắc Ninh province in Northern Vietnam) soon became a large and flourishing center for Buddhism.

Protestantism

Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA) brought Protestantism to Vietnam in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Thus, the arrival of Protestantism was considerably later than other exogenous religions.

Hòa Hảo Buddhism

Documents show that Hòa Hảo Buddhism first appeared when World War II was about to start. Huỳnh Phú Sổ conducted a ceremony for the founding of Hòa Hảo Buddhism on 4 July 1939.

Islam

Islam in Vietnam is practiced mostly by Chăm ethnic-minority people, most of whom live in Hồ Chí Minh City and Southern provinces, such as Ninh Thuận, Bình Thuận, An Giang, Tây Ninh, and Đồng Nai.

Catholicism

Western missionaries started their work in Vietnam as early as the beginning of sixteenth century.
