Hanoi (VNA) – President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Tran Thanh Man has expressed his belief that dignitaries and followers of the Cao Dai sect will make more contributions to the country’s reforms.  

In a letter sent to dignitaries and followers on the occasion of the 93rd anniversary of Caodaism, the official called on them to continue to lead good secular and religious lives, as well as to participate in patriotic movements.

The Caodaism community has upheld traditional cultural and moral values, contributed to the national construction and defence, and responded to patriotic campaigns launched by the VFF, he said.

Man praised the examples in the sect such as the Cao Dai Tay Ninh Church and the Ante Creation (Cao Dai Tien Thien) Church in the southern provinces of Tay Ninh and Ben Tre, for their charity and social welfare work and engagement in new-style rural area and civilised urban area building.

The VFF leader wished the sect a happy and successful festival.

Cao Dai is one of the major religions in Vietnam, with 10,000 dignitaries and 2.5 million followers in Vietnam and 30,000 abroad. The religion has 1,300 places of worship in 37 cities and provinces nationwide.-VNA
