Brother Atsushi Returns to Japan

Following five years of initial formation here in the United States, Brother Atsushi Kuwahara, O.S.A. returned this week to his native Japan to complete his studies leading to Solemn Profession and ordination to the priesthood. Brother Atsushi is one of nine Japanese friars who, with one American and two Filipino friars, form the Vicariate of the Augustinian Martyrs of Japan, within the wider Villanova Province. In Japan the friars minister in four parishes: in Nagasaki, Fukuoka, Nagoya and Tokyo. We wish Brother Atsushi well and thank him for his contribution to our common life here during his stay.
