Eucounter with students in formation in Vietnam


(Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) The members of the Conference of Asia & Oceania Assembly made a visit with Fr. General Michael Brehl C.Ss.R. and Fr. Rogerio Gomes C.Ss.R. (Consultor General) to the House of Formation (Studentate and Postulancy) of the Province of Vietnam in Maithon in Ho Chi Minh City.

It was a wonderful time to pray with and engage with the 87 Students in Theology and Philosophy of the Province of Vietnam and the 37 Students in Postulancy. Fr. General encouraged the Students to engage with the Missionary Priorities of the Conference of Asia Oceania. The Provincial of Oceania and the Viceprovincial of Japan invited the Vietnamese Students to their respective units to be part of the mission of the Redemptorists in Oceania and in Japan.

The members of the Assembly also visited a cemetery which is a memorial to the Unborn where the remains of over 500,000 fetuses are preserved (ashes) as a symbol to honor the unborn.

Fr. Ivel Mendanha, C.Ss.R.
