Father Duy Nguyen, SCJ


Hello, my name is Duy Nguyen and I was born on February 17, 1978 in Chicago to Vietnamese parents. Including myself, there are 8 brothers and sisters in my family and I am the youngest of them. I never dreamt of being a priest growing up. The idea didn’t register in my mind since my parents never encouraged me to pursue this path. It was not until the age of 23, after I had graduated from college from the University of Illinois in Chicago and during the time where I was working that I felt an intense longing to pursue something more meaningful for my life. Eventually the idea of serving God as a priest started to click with me.


At age 25 I entered the SCJ community, whom I met in Toronto, Canada during World Youth Day.     I made my first profession on August 5, 2006 and perpetual profession on January 30, 2010. During my time in formation I ministered on the Lower Brule and Fort Thompson reservations in South Dakota for about a year. When I returned I continued my theological studies received my MDIV degree from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. I was ordained a deacon on October 10, 2010 and immediately began my ministry in northern Mississippi working in 4 parishes. Eventually a 5th parish was added to this cluster of parishes.


On June 11, 2011 I was ordained a priest and I have continued my ministry in Mississippi until I was called to Our Lady of Guadalupe for a new part of my journey.


Here I am in Houston, and I look forward to a graced-filled experience with all of you.

Conozcamos Padre Duy Nguyen, SCJ

Hola, me llamo Duy Nguyen. Nací el 17 de Febrero de 1978 en Chicago de padres Vietnamitas.  En mi familia, somos  8 hermanos  tres mujeres y cinco hombres y  yo soy el menor de ellos. Nunca soñé  con  ser un sacerdote cuando era un niño. La idea no estaba en mi mente, así que mis padres nunca me animaron a seguir este camino. Cuando tenía 23 años, después de mi graduación de la Universidad de Illinois en Chicago y durante el tiempo que estuve trabajando, sentía un intenso deseo  de perseguir algo más significativo en mi vida. Finalmente, la idea de servir a Dios como un sacerdote comenzó a tener sentido y después de dos años, entré en la comunidad SCJ.

Profesé mis primeros votos el 5 de Agosto de 2006 y mis votos perpetuos el 30 de Enero de 2010. En el  2007, trabajé en Dakota del Sur en las reservas Indias por casi un año. Después de ese año de ministerio, regresé a Catholic Theological Union en Chicago para completar mi educación en teología. El obispo me ordenó  diácono el 10 de Octubre de 2010 y el 11 de Junio de  2011 fui ordenado  como sacerdote. Trabajé en el estado  de Mississippi desde que era  diácono y después de ser sacerdote.


Ahora, estoy emocionado de estar aquí en La Comunidad de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe.
