Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement & Call to Religious Life

Dearest Chapter Executive Committees (Ban Chấp Hành Đoàn),
The Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement (Phong Trào Thiếu Nhi Thánh Thể Việt Nam tại Hoa Kỳ) plays a vital role in the promotion of vocations, especially the Call to Religious Life. Over the years, many of our VEYM members have discerned and answered the call to be priests, religious sisters or brothers. In an effort to capture the number of VEYM members who have answered the call to religious life, the National Executive Committee invites you complete a short 3-minute survey to report the number of Chapter members, past or present, who have answered the call to religious life to be priests, religious sisters or brothers. The data gathered from this survey will be invaluable to capture the important contribution of the VEYM to the Catholic Church. Additionally, data collected may be instrumental in promoting vocations and future grants.

Kindly complete this short survey no later than March 5, 2020. For questions, please contact the National Executive Committee via Br. Henry Nguyen, SCJ (Vocations Committee Lead) at henry.nguyen@veym.net.

Please read TNTT Bi-Weekly for monthly update of each committee in the Academic Headquarters. Some activities the Youth Committee (Khối Đoàn Sinh) is working on this month are as follow:

  • The Benchmark team is currently working on standardizing and translating questions for the upcoming 2020 assessment. In response to previous feedbacks, they are trying their best to write age appropriate questions to lessen the anxiety of VEYM members during the assessment.
  • Student Curricula (Chương Trình Thăng Tiến Đoàn Sinh) – the division leads are reviewing lessons for all divisions to see if it’s aligned with the national standard. Please stay tune for the upcoming data collection survey regarding Student Curricula coming to your local chapter March 2020.
