Mẫn expressed his hope that the diocese and its Bishop Joseph Nguyễn Tấn Tước will continue supporting patriotic emulation movements and engaging in environmental protection activities, thus contributing to the nation’s development and solidarity.

On the occasion, Mẫn visited and extended Christmas wishes to Vice Chairman and Secretary of the Committee for Solidarity of Vietnamese Catholics Priest John Baptist Nguyễn Văn Riễn.
