ICC Note:

A group of Catholic women in Vietnam are determined to re-evangelize former Catholics women. It is common for women in Vietnam to marry non-believers and then stop practicing their faith. Therefore, the task this group of sisters is doing should remind us of God’s mercy and love for His children.

10/19/2017 Vietnam (Global Sisters Report) – Ba Sau (her nickname) used to close the gate, shout at visiting nuns and let her dog bark at them when they approached her home. She wanted nothing to do with the sisters because her children work in government agencies, and the communist regime does not look favorably upon Christians and those practicing other faiths.

Although she was baptized as a baby, Ba Sau married her husband, a Communist Party member, outside the church when she was in her 20s. He died decades ago. But during their marriage, she did not live near any churches and had no opportunity to attend Mass. She got into the habit of not practicing her faith for all those years.

After her husband died, she moved to a subparish in Bac Lieu Province, southern Vietnam, still avoiding the church.
