Almost a year ago, three (3) of our Augustinian brothers have gone to Saigon in Vietnam to plant the first Augustinian (OSA) Community in the region. Frs Phu, Tan, and Michael have braved the realities of living in communion, that is, sharing life in common on the way to God, and at the same time integrating themselves in the life of the wider community. In less than a year, the Augustinian community has attracted a combined total of six (6) local candidates under our 'Come and See' program and the Aspirancy stage.
Donations to this Fundraiser will be used to assist in the living expenses of our new Augustinian Community in Saigon, especially in this time of the Pandemic. Fundraiser ends 7th September, but our date to reach our target is 30th August 2020.
Since we can't have a gathering over food and drinks after Mass on the Feast of St Augustine, we can still let our hair down, relax, and have a bit of fun. If we reach the target amount of $3500 before the 30th August 2020 (Sunday), it won't be a bad hair day that Sunday for the Vietnam Mission. Fr Francis will be ready to have his hair cut/trimmed for the sake of the mission. You might even get a chance to cut some strand yourself [COVID-19 restrictions apply, of course :) ]. Let us support the Vietnam Mission by reaching our target!
