What do you enjoy most in your ministry?

In my parish, I like celebrating the sacraments with the faithful, especially Reconciliation. In vocation ministry, I like accompanying serious discerners, helping them toward an authentic response to God. I’m also a chaplain with the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement, one of my best ministry experiences to date.

What first drew you to religious life?

The calling to serve. I have always centered my life around service; if it wasn’t with the church, it was with the local community.

Your favorite way to pray?

Spending time in front of the Eucharist, quiet one-on-one time with Jesus, being with him in both my wholeness and brokenness, just as I am.

What do you do for fun?

I’m in a movie club. I also enjoy exploring the outdoors and hiking.

What do you appreciate about community living?

Whenever I stay elsewhere, I notice something is missing, and that is my time with my confrères. This experience has solidified that religious life is for me.
