One of the essential ministries in the Australian Province is running the house of initial formation. Currently, we have four simple professed students, located in two countries, who are at different stages of their formation and three pre-novices in Vietnam. Significant events happened in the past months for our simple professed students:
On Wednesday, 17th June, 2020, Đỗ Đức Diệm (Diệm) and Nguyễn Đức Tín (Tín) made their First Profession of Religious Vows at the Asia-Pacific Augustinian Novitiate, Cebu, Philippines after the completion of their novitiate year. On the other hand, Nguyễn Hoàng Huy OSA (Huy) and Nguyễn Văn Tú OSA (Tú) made their Renewal of Temporary Vows on Monday, 22nd June, 2020 at Our Lady of Grace Chapel, Brookvale, NSW, Australia.
The Australian Province has been blessed with vocations for the past few years and we continue to ask your prayers ‘that God may send more labourers to His harvest’ and sustain those who are already in our formation program.
