You Think this is tough? Try being a Christian in the middle east right now!
Anthony Kelly, Mark O'Shea, Luke Kennedy, Anthony O'Shea and Fr Nicholas Pearce from The Frassati Fraternity(Melbourne) have formed a team this year to enter Tough Mudder to raise money and awareness for the Persecuted Christians and the great work being done to support them by Aid to the Church in Need.
In particular, this year we are seeking to raise $3000 to Support four seminarians to study at the St. Mark Seminary, dedicated to pastoral experience in a Muslim environment. The primary purpose is directed towards the formation and training of students who need to be prepared for missionary ministry, in particular for those who will be exposed to a Muslim environment such as those supporting the minority Christian communities in the Middle East.
