Our Lady Of La Vang

There is a small chapel on the crypt level of the Basilica of National Shrine honoring Our Lady of La Vang of Vietnam. Our Lady of La Vang refers to a reported Marian apparition at a time when Catholics were persecuted and killed in Vietnam.

  1. Hello Premanand, I wonder if you would give me permission to use your beautiful photo of Our Lady of La Vang on plastic cards that tell people about our hotline in the U.S. for people reporting wage theft, coerced labor, and human trafficking? Volunteers have translated a short text into Vietnamese. On the other side, we’d like to have an image of the Virgin Mary that would appeal to immigrants from Vietnam and their families.
    The hotline:

    I am volunteering for this group, in the San Francisco Bay Area in California:

    Please email me when it is convenient for you.
