Our Lady of Vietnam

Just driving down SC 14 and saw this Vietnamese Catholic Shrine on the right, beautiful site, very large statue of Mary, strange to see in this largely Protestant Bible-belt area, sign says it was built by Vietnamese Catholic Refugees in South Carolina. Catholic Diocese of Charleston, Is very touching to see this there, what they must of went through to escape persecution and oppression, if you know anything about the Vietcong you would understand how thankful they must be....

When it was built in 1991, it was the only shrine to Mary in all of South Carolina.
