Vietnamese Catholic Temple.

Vietnamese Catholic Temple

The Vietnamese Martyrs Parish looks more like an enormous Asian temple than a Catholic Church. Built by the Phoenix Vietnamese community, many of the architectural features were imported from Asia. Masses are held in Vietnamese. Much of the giant building is a community center, with the church making up the street-side of the complex.

Outside there is a group of statues representing the French Missionaries who brought Catholicism to Vietnam and depictions of the Vietnamese martyrs. The driveway is located at the back of the building.
