The Passionist Mission of Our Lady of Lavang, a small branch of the Congregation of the Passion, is present in three locations in Vietnam, all student houses for our seminarians in Ho Chi Minh City.

St Gabriel’s is home to eight Passionist theology students and Fr Jasmin their formator. They share the house with Fr Jeff Foale the Mission Superior and Fr Thomas Anamattathil the Mission Business Manager.

St Vincent Strambi’s is home to thirteen philosophy students led by Fr Joseph Tuấn, while Fr John Baptist Tuệ takes care of Blessed Andre Fu Yen’s with nine pre-philosophy students.

Founded in 2005, this Mission aims to help rebuild the Church in Vietnam by training indigenous missionaries to serve especially the most remote and neglected. So far five priests have been ordained and bishops are seeking their help in some challenging locations.
