BOARD OF ADVISORS
Kontum Diocese is located in the highlands of Central Vietnam. Generally, the people of Kontum have a hard life and have to face with many difficulties in many areas of life.
Kontum is also a region with many lepers. With more than 38 ethnic races, a majority of them live in poor conditions, malnutrition, sickness and they need a lot of help and care to reduce their suffering.
Since the arriving of Catholic religion in Vietnam, the Church has really involved in the care of improving people’s condition of life; however, the diocese has limited human work force. Therefore, the diocese put a lot of hope and trust in new ministers and charity volunteers to lend a helping hand in the great field of missionary.
The diocese covers two regions: Kontum and Pleiku with 249 parishes.
Area: 25,730 Km2
Ethnic races: 51%
