Letter from the President of the Truong Buu Diep Foundation ® (TBDF)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

The year 2017 has passed with many memorable events from Truong Buu Diep Foundation ® (TBDF). First off, we put together an extremely well organized and outstanding event, Father Truong Buu Diep's 70th Commemoration. Second, the initiation of the "Village of Father Diep" project, to be located in Riverside, California. This could not have happened without the collaboration of all who love and are beholden to Father Diep.

Further more in 2016, Father Truong Buu Diep has graced us with many blessings, 218 of which were granted right here at the office of TBDF. The highlight of these were the life-saving miracles that Father Diep has granted, all of which are present with complete sets of records and data from doctors and hospitals here in America.

Following the Commemoration event of 2018, the Spiritual Leader of our organization, who is celebrating his 60th year in priesthood and reaching 90 years of age, stated that he especially desires to focus on how to accelerate the process of Canonization of Father Truong Buu Diep and urges the Executive Board to do the same.

In order to implement the will of the Spiritual Leader, stepping into this upcoming year, the aspiration of TBDF is to wholeheartedly devote all of our resources to contribute to and expedite the canonization process of Father Truong Buu Diep.

With this opportunity, we would like to express our aspiration to the duly officers of The Cause Of Canonization For Fr. Francis Xavier Truong Buu Diep, the Postulator, that we are more than willing to contribute all of our available resources: petition signatures, testimonies, as well as all necessary funding for the canonization process of Father Francisco Xavier Truong Buu Diep to be promptly and conveniently approved by the Vatican, all within the boundaries of morality and the law.

The wish of our Vietnamese community from around the world, who cherish and are eternally grateful to Father Diep, is to congregate and share our prayers so that our homeland Vietnam will soon be blessed with a new virtuous and holy Saint in the new year, 2018.


Thu-Huong Pham, President of the Truong Buu Diep Foundation ®
