St Joseph’s Parish Council invites you to the launch of
SON of VIETNAM
a family’s quest for freedom
KIM SON NGUYEN with PAUL CALLEJA
Sunday 1 December 2019
10.00 am after morning 9 am Mass
St. Joseph’s Catholic Parish Centre
With light refreshments
SON OF VIETNAM is a true story of the Nguyen’s family quest for freedom from the control of Communism in Vietnam.
Their story commences with the 1954 Geneva. Agreement that brought an end to the First Vietnam War. It charts the family’s movement from the communist North, their resettlement and growth in the non communist South, the upheaval of their lives 21 years later by the communist capture of Saigon and the subsequent 25 years of struggle to escape the religious, political and economic oppression that characterised this period of Vietnamese history.
Their epic quest for freedom was pitted with episodes of destitution, family dispersion, and betrayal by close family and friends together with times of imprisonment, near death experiences, piracy, sea rescues, years in refugee camps and the tragic loss of two of the family’s youngest children.
Despite these grim challenges and experiences the conclusion of their collective endeavours will inspire and amaze the reader.
Dear St Michael’s School Community
Vinnies are so grateful for all you give. You truly change lives.
Vinnies urgently need donations of good quality clothes, books, furniture and homewares.
All donations are either given directly to people in need or sold in Vinnies retail shops at nominal prices that everyone can afford; these profits in turn help us provide vital assistance to over 50,000 West Australians in need (yearly). Your donations make a positive difference; you are supporting people less fortunate as well as actively helping the environment by reducing landfill.
Perhaps, now is the time to sort through your unwanted summer clothes and donate them to Vinnies. Donated goods can be put in the Vinnies bin outside the Church premises, or dropped off at the Shop on Old Perth Road. Furniture can also be picked up and sent for recycling to families when they need to urgently move as a result of domestic violence, etc.
Thank you again because as you care, lives are changed!
