In 1999 along with other Vietnamese communities in the United States of America, Bishop Kevin Boland established Saints Peter and Paul Parish and located it at the Nativity of Our Lord Church with these missions:
- To preserve and develop the traditional Catholicism of the Vietnamese in the city of Savannah and the vicinity.
- To help the Vietnamese who were born and raised in the evangelized culture of Vietnam to continue practicing their faith in the new milieu.
- To help the youth translate into English the Catholic faith they received at home and incorporate it to their daily life.
Co-operating with the Americans who built and practiced their faith for years in the Church of The Nativity of Our Lord, the Vietnamese Catholics of Savannah maintain and spread the Catholicism at Sts. Peter & Paul Parish.
