Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement: Thiếu Nhi Thánh Thể

Đoàn Thiếu Nhi Thánh Thể St. Polycarp (TNTTSP), a local chapter of Phong Trào Thiếu Nhi Thánh Thể Việt Nam tại Hoa Kỳ (The Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement in the USA), organized under Liên Đoàn Nguồn Sống (Nguồn Sống League, Diocese of Orange) and Miền Tây Nam (Southwestern Region), was formally established on January 16, 1994 at St. Polycarp Catholic Church in Stanton, California under the guidance of Father Giuse Nguyễn Văn Thành and the collaboration of a small group of young, spirited and determined individuals. Thanks to the tireless work and sacrifice of all Huynh Trưởng’s (Youth Leaders) and benefactors, including former pastors and chaplains, the Vietnamese community at St. Polycarp, parents, and trợ tá (Parent Leaders), TNTTSP has experienced tremendous growth in the last 25 years, having commenced with 30 registered Đoàn Sinh (youth members) and 10 active Huynh Trưởng’s (Youth Leaders) and grown to what is now approximately 260 registered Đoàn Sinh (youth members) and 38 active Huynh Trưởng’s (Youth Leaders), as it strives to carry out the Society’s missions:

  • To educate the youth in both social and spiritual life and help them become virtuous people and good Christians.
  • To organize and engage the youth in spreading the Good News and building society.
