Andrew Dũng-Lạc (Anrê Trần An Dũng Lạc Vietnamese pronunciation: [aːnze˧ tɕən˨˩ aːn˧ zuŋ˧˥ lak˧˨], 1795 – 21 December 1839) was a Vietnamese priest executed by beheading in the reign of Minh Mạng. He is a saint and martyr of the Catholic Church,

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.[1] During persecution, Andrew Dũng changed his name to Lạc to avoid capture, and thus he is memorialised as Andrew Dũng-Lạc (Anrê Dũng Lạc).[2] His memorial is 24 November; this memorial celebrates all of the Vietnamese Martyrs of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries (1625–1886).
