Fr. Trung Nguyen

Rector of St. Mary's Seminary

2017 Christmas Banquet

 

Fr.Nguyen spoke about priestly formation and why someone would want to be a priest. The path to the priesthood is not a short one. It takes 8 or 9 years of study and preparation before a candidate is ordained. Aside from the recognized priestly duties of celebrating Mass and administering the sacrament, and a life of gratitude for the material blessings of God’s creation, the one thing that is a priests greatest reward is love for those whom they serve.

In addition priests make themselves readily available for all those in need, and to teach, sanctify and govern, which shows that a priest is consecrated to Christ and his fellow man.
