CNA Staff, Jan 9, 2021 / 08:22 pm (CNA).- Inspired by Pope Francis’ message for the World Day of Peace, a Vietnamese bishop is encouraging Catholics to establish an action plan to serve people in need during the Lunar New Year. 

Bishop Stephanus Tri Buu Thien of Can Tho, a diocese in southern Vietnam, asked parishioners to offer prayers and humanitarian relief to those in poverty. 

According to UCA News, the bishop said many local Catholics are struggling financially because of the pandemic. He urged parishioners, even those who have been affected by COVID-19, to imitate the Good Samaritan and provide aid to their neighbors in poverty.
