Saint Andrew Dung-Lac, Priest and Companions, Martyrs Short life History

Andrew Dũng-Lạc was a Vietnamese Roman Catholic priest. He was executed by beheading in the reign of Minh Mạng.

He was born Trần An Dũng in 1795, taking the name Andrew at his baptism (Anrê Dũng) and was ordained a priest on 15 March 1823.

During persecution, Andrew Dũng changed his name to Lạc to avoid capture, and thus he is memorialised as Andrew Dũng-Lạc (Anrê Dũng Lạc).
