KHANH QUOC TRAN

My vocation story starts around my senior year of high school, where I experienced the gift of conversion after hearing a homily on the parable of the prodigal son. After that, I went to confession for the first time in four years. I’ve entered seminary formation because I came to the realization that we live in a world where people are becoming increasingly unhappy and unfulfilled, and so, I felt that the Lord was calling me to love these children of God, and that is what has led me to pursue a vocation to the priesthood.
