JOHN-PAUL THIEN-DUC NGUYEN
My vocation story started in my sophomore year of high school when my father passed away. I was not always a practicing Catholic, but this inspired me to seek the hidden greatness of the Catholic faith. I started to pray about my discernment to the priesthood and growing older, my devotion to the Eucharist grew larger. I asked for a sign from the Lord, and I had a dream that night where I did my first Mass at my home parish.
