Father Harry Thiel CSsR, Apostle to the Hmong

In Memory of Father Harry Thiel CSsR +

Father Harry Thiel CSsR was a Redemptorist Missionary to Thailand and the Apostle to the Hmong People living in the mountains of northern Thailand. He brought them the message of the Great Father, God of all gods and his only Son Jesus Christ. His work led to the conversion of over 5000 people. He built 25 churches and the Hmong Center to serve these converts and others in need. He spent 42 years in Thailand and only returned to the United States when forced by ill health. He will tell you his own story except for the last few years. My Story He was a saintly and humble man who trusted in the Lord's loving kindness.
