Under a bright Sunday sky, Roman Catholic members of the Vietnamese American community gathered to remember dark days and the heroism of a brave few in their motherland. More than 7,000 people turned out for the annual memorial in Santa Ana Stadium to honor 117 Vietnamese Catholic martyrs, slain in their homeland from the 16th to 19th centuries. All were proclaimed saints in 1988 by Pope John Paul II in the largest group canonization in church history.
