I have been doing Youth Ministry, specially for the Vietnamese, since September, 2016. There are 14 Chapters of the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement (VEYM) which has been established in 14 Vietnamese Catholic Communities in the North-East states of US:

Massachusette: Dorchester, Malden, Chelsea, East-Boston, Randolph, Lowell, Worcester, Springfield

New Hampshire: Manchester

New York: Syracuse, Buffalo, Long Island

Conneticut: Hartford, Bridgeport

New Jersey: South Plainfield (will be formed soon)

As an an Area-Chaplain for the VEYM in the area, I have an opportunity to visit, celebrating masses, also giving retreats to Vietnamese youth in the area. Here are few recent photos of VEYM activities:
