A high-ranking delegation led by Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Trương Hòa Bình extended Christmas greetings to the Hanoi Archdiocese and the Committee for Solidarity of Vietnamese Catholics (CSVC) on December 20.

The Deputy PM wished local Catholic dignitaries and followers a merry Christmas and a happy new year in 2021 while staying on guard against COVID-19.

He briefed them on the country’s socio-economic development and efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 this year, and underlined that the relations between the State and the Catholic Church in Vietnam have been thriving, and so have the Vietnam-Vatican ties with mutual respect and understanding.

For his part, Joseph Vũ Văn Thiên, Archbishop of the Hanoi Archdiocese, voiced his delight at the country’s accomplishments in socio-economy, security and national defence in the past year.

The Hanoi Archdiocese encompasses Hanoi, and Hoa Binh, Ha Nam and Nam Dinh provinces with about 35,000 followers.

He voiced his hope that the CSVC will continue upholding the spirit of solidarity and join the nation in battling COVID-19.
