Founded in 1985 by Thich Giac Duc, also the spiritual leader of the community, the Universal Buddhist Congregation is a host of more than two thousand members and host more than thirty services on an average day. The congregation has a majority of children and teenagers, as young people are a focus of this community. It conducts various activities for the youngsters after the Sunday services.
The Universal Buddhist Congregation structure stands at a former Catholic Church building. The monks of the congregation are allowed to marry, which adds to its peculiarity. Buddhism however, derives its intricate details from the Vietnamese tradition, and therefore the services are in Vietnamese. They celebrate some of the big festivals annually, like Buddha’s Birthday, Vietnamese Mother’s Day, and the ceremony of Buddha’s Enlightenment.
