Following is a note Father Trieu wrote telling us a little about himself:
"My name is Benoit Trieu Van Vu. I like to be called Fr. Trieu  (pronounced "Chu").  I was born in Vietnam in a fervent Catholic family of seven children. I am the baby. My home parish’s name is Yen Tho. It belongs to the Diocese of Phat Diem where the Catholics are very devout and traditional. My Diocese is well known by the oriental architecture of its cathedral.
    I have desired to be a priest since when I was around 10 years old. Vietnamese Catholic Church in the 1980s, especially the Church in the north had met a lot of difficulties. However, we, little boys, kept practicing our Catholic faith faithfully and joyfully. We, every day, went to our parish church for evening prayer, even though, at that time, our church did not have the Blessed Sacrament, because we did not have a pastor. The lack of a pastor and the sacraments raised within me a desire to become a priest.
    When I was 22 years old, I entered a Benedictine Monastery in Saigon, but always sensed there was something more. When I was 37 years old, I went to Mt. Angel Abbey in Oregon to study scripture.  Through the help of Christ in the Desert Monastery, I was led to the Archdiocese of Sana Fe Vocations Office to finish my studies and become a priest.  In June 2014, I was ordained deaconate and served at St. Charles Borromeo for one year. I was ordained a priest on May 23, 2015.  I was then assigned as the Parochial Vicar at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish in Bernalillo, NM.  I was appointed Pastor of St. Joseph's, Springer and Immaculate Conception, Cimarron & missions on June 17, 2017.


We are a Mission of Immaculate Conception in Cimarron , NM.  The other Mission in our area is St. Mel's in Eagle Nest, NM. Please click on the follow8ing link to get the latest bulletin. 


Services are held four times a week. Once with our Pastor Ft. Trieu and the other times with Father Doug Mitchell, a retired pries who lives in Angel Fire.
