A busy weekend!

A busy weekend!

These have been busy days for Dn. Henry Nguyen, SCJ. On Friday, May 6, he graduated from Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology with his master’s in divinity. The next day, May 7, Henry was ordained to the diaconate by Bishop Joseph Potocnak, SCJ, bishop emeritus of De Aar, South Africa.
 
Reflecting on his ordination, Dn. Henry said that “My life changes forever as I take this next step in my journey of faith to say ‘yes.’ Preparing for my diaconate ordination confirmed my vocation because I know that I am called towards a life of service and to be among the people.

“I am excited to start my ministerial experience at St. Martin of Tours next month. I am excited to put into practice what I have been learning these last seven years. I am excited to share the Good News of the Lord with all.”
 
Dn. Henry is assigned to St. Martin of Tours parish in Franklin, WI, as of June 1.

“I am grateful to have received an overwhelming bundle of support from family and friends, near and far, and from the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement which fostered my religious vocation,” added Dn. Henry. “I continue to be in awe of all the love that is bestowed on me. I will transpose it onto others, to truly be a prophet of love.”
