On April 10, 2023, Monday of the Octave of Easter, the Custody of St. Francis Anthony Fasani in Vietnam organized a picnic day at Vũng Tàu Beach for its friars.

Those participating included the Curia community, and the postulants, from the Annunciation of the B.V.M. Friary in Hồ Chí Minh City, the student friars from the St. Anthony Friary in Hồ Chí Minh City, and the friars from its filial house in Long Khánh.
On the way to Vũng Tàu Beach, the communities arranged to meet at the Phước Sơn Cistercian Monastery to celebrate Mass and pray together. Once all of the friars arrived at Vũng Tàu Beach, the student friars organized some games for them to play. Some of the friars played soccer while others played volleyball. At lunch time, the friars congratulated Father Peter VŨ (Bình Quốc) and Father John Baptist NGUYỄN (Ngọc Điền) who celebrate their birthdays in April. After lunch, the friars and postulants spent some time singing Karaoke and swimming in the sea. In the late afternoon, the friars returned to their friaries.
Although the outing was only for one day, the friars and postulants had a joyful time celebrating the resurrection of our Lord at the Mass and sharing some fraternal time together.
