SMHL DAMAS 23 and 24 Status Update!

With careful consideration of the current events and the extension of social distancing, BTVLD has decided to make the difficult decision to cancel SMHL Damas 23 and 24. We are unsure how long this pandemic will extend until and the safety of our members is our utmost priority. Even in the event that social distancing is lifted by May, we would like to allow communities, parishes, and chapters to regain their own sense of normalcy before pursuing a LD event. 

Please contact your chapter president if you have further questions. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Please continue to stay safe and to unite with Jesus in the Eucharist through prayer and spiritual communion.

Welcome to Liên Đoàn Phaolô Hạnh’s Official Webpage!

Thank you for visiting our official web page! Established in 1987, our league of chapters is situated in the north eastern region of the united states. This year we celebrated our 32nd anniversary. Currently, we serve 12 active chapters throughout the states of Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Feel free to browse our links and menu tabs to learn more about our chapters, events, and resources.

Formerly known as Miền Đông Bắc, our league of chapters has formally taken a new name: Liên Đoàn Phaolô Hạnh, after the Vietnamese Martyr Saint Phaolô Hạnh. Saint Phaolô Hạnh was born in 1827 and died defending his faith in 1859. Born to a Christian family in the apostolic vicariate of West Cochinchina (in modern Vietnam), Saint Phaolô Hạnh and two of his brothers joined a band of highwaymen and burglars, with Phaolô Hạnh as their leader. When he insisted that the thieves return some of their loot to the poor, they betrayed him to the authorities, accusing him of treason by collaborating with the French. Arrested, Phaolô Hạnh denied the treason but proclaimed himself a sinful Christian and refused to renounce his faith. As a result he was tortured and martyred in the persecutions of emperor Tu-Duc. He was later venerated in 1908 and beatified in 1909 by Pope Pius X. Pope John Paul II canonized Saint Phaolô Hạnh in 1988. You may find more bibliographical information on our league of chapters’ patron saint under the Ban Cháp Hành LĐ page.
