A delegation from the Hanoi Archdiocese led by its Archbishop Nguyen Van Nhon paid a pre-Tet visit to the the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation on January 20.

At the meeting, the two sides agreed that their recent exchange visits have led to the harmonious relationship between them.

Ha Thi Khiet, head of the Commission for Mass Mobilisation, hailed the country’s Catholic followers, describing them as active in building cultural life in residential areas and new-style rural areas.

Khiet extended New Year wishes to the archdiocese and Catholics nationwide and hoped they will continue contributing to the country’s construction and defence.

For his part, Archbishop Nguyen Van Nhon expressed his wish to receive continued support from the Party and State in religious practices and in handling the Church’s proposals.-VNA
