Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, Toronto ON – September 04, 2010: Dem Ca Nhac Tieng Hat Vi Nguoi Ngheo
At the beginning of September, my friends and I had the honour to co-MC a special evening of faith, music, and charity. The Vietnamese Catholic community gathered during the visit of Father Nguyen Tan Sang (Cha Sang), a Vietnamese priest with a warm heart and a golden voice, who resides in Vietnam but occasionally travels to major cities during his time off to share his faith and organize charity events for the poor in Vietnam. His charity work helps orphans, the blind and sick, the elderly without caregivers, and the Vietnamese Montagnards among others, who receive little help or attention in communist countries like Vietnam. Bless his heart!
Well-known Vietnamese guest singers such as Son Ca and Giao Linh also lent their wonderful voices to the cause (though personally I prefer the local singers). A great amount was raised from the auction of two beautiful portraits alone. All in all, it was a very successful charity event thanks to the generosity of the community.
Once again, I leave you with some photos of the event. Photographer: Papa!
