About TBDF

Truong Buu Diep Foundation ®, abbreviated as TBDF, is a non-profit organization established by the family of John and Holly Pham Nguyen, a resident in Fountain Valley, California, on August 16, 2011. To express their gratitude toward Father Truong Buu Diep, who had saved their lives twice, John and Holly hope to return the grace by reaching out to the community and bringing Father Truong Buu Diep's name closer to everyone.

The sole goal of Truong Buu Diep Foundation ® is to honor Father Truong Buu Diep. In this present stage, the glorification of Father Diep is manifested through the three main tasks:

  • First, call for the Petition (TNT) through We The People program to ask the United States government for a voice in the Holy See to Canonize Father Truong Buu Diep.
  • Second, collect and spread the blessings of Father Diep through all forms of media.
  • Third, promote and implement community services programs in the name of Father Diep.

Since March 2012, we have opened our office and the Visitation House of Father Diep on 14231 Euclid Street, Room E 103-105, Garden Grove, California. With an area of nearly 3,000 SqF, this place displays many precious memories of Father Diep such as the two statues of Father, a three-dimensional bas-relief, fragments of the casket, and Father's remains... all brought back from Father's grave at Tac Say Church so that people who admire Father Diep can have a place to visit and pray with him in the United States.

Our goal is not to call for fundraisings or financial donations. Instead, we welcome voluntary donations from businesses, especially the contribution of everyone to bring the name of Father Truong Buu Diep to the world, irrespective of religion or territory.

Message From Father Dinh Ngoc Que


Dear Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased and proud to introduce to you the Fourth Book of FATHER DIEP’S BLESSINGS, published on the occasion of Father Truong Buu Diep’s 71st Commemoration of His Passing.
Once a year, the Truong Buu Diep Foundation publishes a collection of one hundred Testimonials of witnesses who come to the Truong Buu Diep Foundation to tell their stories of Blessings by Father Diep as testament to the miracles of his intercession.  In addition, the book also reports on the activities of the Foundation during the past year and introduces future activities planned by the Foundation in the upcoming year.
The year 2018 marked many memorable events organized by the Truong Buu Diep Foundation (TBDF). First, the Foundation successfully hosted the 71th Commemoration of
Father Diep’s Passing. Second, the Foundation launched a  program to build Father Diep’s Village in Riverside, California. 
These positive results were made possible by the tremendous combined efforts of all those who love Father Diep and who have benefited from his blessings.
The holiness of Father Truong Buu Diep is evidenced by the ever increasing number of people who come in droves to the Truong Buu Diep Foundation in the city of Garden Grove, California, USA.  According to verifiable records, there were over 65,000 visitations to the Truong Buu Diep Foundation in 2016.  I wish to affirm here, that the Truong Buu Diep Foundation has played a significant role in bringing Father Diep closer to the Vietnamese community overseas, especially to those who have not had the opportunity to visit Father Diep in Vietnam.  Truth be known that the work of the Truong Buu Diep Foundation is above-board and commendable.
Now in the new year of 2017, in the spirit of bringing Father Diep to everyone, the Truong Buu Diep Foundation will continue with the following programs:  visitations to elders and seniors residing in nursing homes of Orange County, and to visit witnesses of Father Diep’s miracles who reside throughout the United States.
Especially this year, the Foundation will be introducing a new program called:  “Father Diep Beside Me” with the mission to bring Father Truong Buu Diep’s blessings to everyone, everywhere, all the time, so that they may pray to him and thank him for his miracles by utilizing an application called TBDF (app).  Additionally, the Foundation will continue to promote and advocate for the construction of a Father Truong Buu Diep Village where the elderly and lonely may reside in health and happiness in the loving comfort of Father Truong Buu Diep.
The Compassion of Father Truong Buu Diep shines upon everyone, always welcoming us to come pray with him.  I, as the Spiritual Advisor of the Truong Buu Diep Foundation give my blessings to the brothers and sisters who voluntarily lead and direct the Truong Buu Diep Foundation and to all those irrespective of their religious affiliation;  I give my best wishes of peace and happiness to everyone.
