Burying or rescuing the unborn babies, supporting the people in difficult circumstances is the top
missions of Protecting Life Committee of the Archdiocese of Xuan Loc. However, raising the awareness
of Protecting Life in our society is the resolution for the abortion problem. In our limited capacity, the
Committee eager to educate the youth, to follow the educational principles of the Education Ministry.
We would like to join the School and the State in contributing to the awareness of life protection. Also,
we believe education would be the impetus of mind changing.
To proceed with this meaningful program, the Life Protection Committee has been starting the
construction of the “Communicating Park” in addition to others means such as the Khatvongsong.org
web site, the Facebook of Nguyen Van Tich (Father Tich Thai Nhi), YouTube channel named “Father Tich
Thai Nhi” and the “Thai Nhi Cemetery” with new designed upgrade, .
After a period of delay, today, I would like to inform to the benefactors, especially our Protecting Life
Sponsors in USA, the Communicating Park Plan and its implementation.
In Vietnamese Society, there are about sixty to seventy percent of the abortion cases on which the
persons involved are students. They are from grade sixth students (12 years old) to university students.
Among the sixth-grade students, there is an implicit standard among their friends, they would need to
have sex to prove they are in contemporary style and in the know. The consequence of the action is that
the students are pregnant, giving birth or doing abortion without enough knowledge of what have
happened, why they are in the dilemma. The Life Protection Committee would like to raise the
awareness of life and human dignity and to speak for the unborn children in preventing wicked action
The dreaming park locates in front of the Mai Tien Temporary Shelter, the land was bought four years
ago with the following purposes:
1. Create a playground for the children and people who come to the Temporary Shelter. It is the relaxing
place during stress and away from home time for people who come to the Shelter in sad and depressed
mood. This park would help to relieve stress and as a mean to connects persons in the Shelter together.
2. Park is the welcome place for families who bring their children to visit the Shelter, as an children’s
park of entertainment. Especially, The Communicating Park is for young people to come and exchange
thoughts and friendship. From these exchanges, young people gain more experience about consequence
of unresponsible sex, the precious of Life, the gift of Life and human dignity.
