Our Lady of the Lake "Mass of Celebration"

For Your Information

Chanch Van Nguyen, a priest of the Diocese of Bac Ninh, North Vietnam, until recently serving the Diocese of Lafayette, has published a book about salvation, and has been attempting to promote the book in catholic parishes and other local venues in our Diocese.  A number of elements are considered incompatible with Catholic doctrine and seriously deviate from the integrity of the truth of the Catholic faith.  Given the nature of these doctrinal errors, the book should not be promoted under Catholic auspices.  Chanh Van Nguyen is currently on personal leave from priestly ministry; therefore, he should not be asked to address any Catholic group.
