Fr. Son Nguyen, SCJ
I am Fr. Son Nguyen, SCJ. I was born April 27, 1984 in Ha Tinh - Vietnam. Graduated in 2008 with a degree in Business and Chinese language at HUFLIT University in Saigon. Entered the Priests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Congregation in 2010. In 2014 I studied Philosophy at Xavier University in Cagayan De Oro, Mindanao, and 2019 Theology at the Jesuit run Loyola School of Theology, Manila - Philippines. I professed first vows May 13, 2015 in SCJ Novitiate House, Locuban, Dumalinao, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines and ordained to the priesthood December 30, 2020 in Saigon - Vietnam. Soon after ordination, I was assigned to serve in the United States but due to various delays it took over a year to get the necessary documentation. Arrived in the United States on April 21, 2022 and joined St. Martin of Tours parish in Franklin WI as associate pastor. The parish is home to the Vietnamese Catholic community in the Milwaukee Archdiocese.
