The Queen of Peace Cathedral [1] (Vietnamese: Nhà Thờ Chình Toà Dức Maria Ban Hoá Binh; French: Cathédrale Reine-de-la-Paix) also called Regina Pacis Cathedral or Long Xuyên Cathedral[2] is the name given to a religious building that is located in Long Xuyen, capital city of the province of An Giang in the Mekong Delta region in the southwest Asian country of Vietnam.[3]

The temple follows the Roman or Latin rite and is the mother of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Long Xuyen (Dioecesis Longxuyensis or Giáo phận Long Xuyên) which was created in 1960 by bull "Christi mandata" of Pope John XXIII. It was formally consecrated in 1974.

It is under the pastoral responsibility of the Bishop Joseph Trần Xuân Tiếu. It stands a large statue dedicated to the Virgin Mary and a tower of 55 meters high.[4]
