Father Nguyen Khac Minh (Father Michael) announced on the 24th of March that he has the permission from the Vietnam government to begin a new work at, which, according to Google Translate means, “Thoi Hung Hamlet, Giai Xuan Commune, Phong Dien District, Can Tho City, about 30 km or 18.6 miles from Rach Suc.
Father Minh says that, “It’s a totally new community.” He named it, Francis Joseph Church. He will now spend 50% of his time at Francis Joseph Church and 50% at Rach Suc. He hopes, someday soon, to purchase land nearby and build a chapel.
Please pray for the priests at Rach Suc, Father Minh and Father Francis and for all their work in Can Tho.
