This was one of many places in Malaysia where Vietnamese Catholics chose to conduct their great ceremony in the year.

The organizers said that this year a smaller number of Vietnamese Catholics attended the ceremony than previous years because many Vietnamese workers returned the homeland.

The data provided by Malaysia’s Ministry of Home Affairs shows that there are about 29,000 legal Vietnamese workers working in the country, while the figure was 60,000 in early 2016.

Like previous years, a priest was sent from Vietnam to the Holy Family Church to organize the ceremony for Vietnamese Catholics in this area.

Apart from Kajang, Vietnamese Catholics also gathered to welcome Christmas in many other places such as Kuala Lumpur, Johor and Penang./.
