2 previous HT from Viet-Nam, decided to found the first VEYS in Canada.
After asking the church's priest, who got interested, they were presenting the movement during a usual Sunday Mass, recruiting future youth leaders.
Some people, got interested. So after several months of formation, it was the time for exam.
Many drop out, and 6 of them, became the first HT generation of TNTT Montréal.
At Mass, Fr. Joseph Tuan Trang Pham officially announce to the Vietnamese Catholic community
of Montreal the coming of TNTT Montréal. 6 new youth leaders were introduced :
1. Dominico Phung V. Phuc Nhat
2. Giuse Phung Van Phuc Anh
3. Gioan B. Phung Van Chanh
4. Teresa Vu Thi Phuong Tram
5. Maria Goretti Vuong Phuong Men
6. Teresa Vu Thi Kiem Hue
As VEYS is new to the community, only few youngs attended it (10 Seedling & 5 Search).
To approach with the practice of the Movement to live close to nature, youth leaders organized the 1st summer training camp.
Youth leaders upgrade few Search kids into the 1st Companion generation (14-18 years old).
