Minister General Visits Vietnam

Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual, Friar Carlos Trovarelli visited our friars in Vietnam in November. Pictured above is Father Carlos with the community of St. Anthony Friary in Saigon. This is our post-novitiate house where the students are either in philosophy studies or theological studies.

The Vietnamese dish crew: The friars do not have a dishwasher but have a very efficient system for washing dishes.
St. Anthony Bread – The friars have their own bakery equipment for the making of bread which is packaged and sold as St. Anthony’s Bread. The proceeds of this venture are used to support the Friars’ outreach to the poor.
