Memo re:
Death of Mother of Fr Bang Van Peter Nguyen svd

Dear Confreres,

We have just received word that the Mother of Fr Bang Van Peter Nguyen svd (from DMC) passed away last night.

Martha Cao Thi Hong was 77 , and she passed away at 8.00pm last night, Sydney time.

On 27th August Martha suffered a serious stroke, with internal bleeding on the brain. Fr Bang left for Vietnam as soon as he heard about her condition, and thankfully he arrived before she passed away.

Please keep Martha and all the family in your prayers at this very sad time. Her funeral will be held in Vietnam tomorrow, 30th August, at 2.00pm (Sydney time).

We are with the family in prayer.
