Although the 10 hour drive down to Texas was long, the experience of visiting all three parishes made up for it! We were constantly moving nonstop between the parishes, visiting and talking with the young and old alike, while sharing our stories and learning more about theirs, especially with the young members of Thiếu Nhi Thánh Thể (the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Society).
We were also able to stop by the Thiên Tâm Benedictine Monastery, where some members of Thiếu Nhi Thánh Thể Miền Nam were holding their Cấp II training for Ngành Nghĩa, an unplanned decision! But we were so grateful to be able to visit them and talk to them about our community. We pray that God touched and opened their hearts to the possibility of religious life!
