The Marist Brothers of Korea Sector celebrated the perpetual profession of Br. Abraham Kang Min Woo on June 6th at the Parish Church of the Holy Korean Martyrs in Song San Dong in Seoul (East Asia Province).

The celebration, held on the liturgical feast of St. Marcellin Champagnat involved different persons from the parish, all the brothers in Korea, his family, friends, and many good people who support and collaborate with the Brothers in the different apostolates they do in the country.
