Vietnam Pilgrimage

“We need the poor to evangelise us, to show us this new face of Christ” - Br Philip Pinto cfc

The Year 11 students at CBC have the opportunity to participate annually in a pilgrimage to Vietnam with St. Mary’s College. The pilgrimage challenges our students to live out the EREA touchstone “Justice and Solidarity” where we are committed to justice and peace for all, grounded in a spirituality of action and reflection that calls us to stand in solidarity with those who are marginalised and the Earth itself.

Since 2005, Christian Brothers College and St. Mary’s College students' have combined to participate in a Pilgrimage to Vietnam.

The primary focus of the Vietnam Pilgrimage is on giving service and working with orphaned, disabled children in the Phu My Orphanage in the Thi Nghe District, Saigon. The Orphanage was founded in 1875 is operated by the Sisters of St Paul de Charters where they provide care for over 300 young people ranging from 2 to 21 years of age. The children have a range of physical and intellectual disabilities and over 160 of these children are bedridden. While at the Orphanage, students participate in a range of activities and are immersed in the day to day operation of the Orphanage.

The Pilgrimage Vision:
A journey of mission - where we provide service to those in need... a giving of one's self to others.
A journey of immersion - where we immerse ourselves in the vibrant and diverse culture of Vietnam.
A journey of self discovery - where we, as individuals and a group discover strengths, limitations and goodwill.
