Welcome Jude Nguyen

St Kevin’s is very excited to welcome 4th year Seminarian ‘Jude (Tuong) Nguyen’ who will be with us until the end of 2022.

Jude tells us a little about himself….
“While everyone in the religious community knows me as Jude, my real name is Tuong Nguyen. I am originally from DakLak, Viet Nam.
Born on October 1, 1989, I am the fourth of six children in our family, I finished Junior and Senior High School in Ho Chi Minh City in 2008. My discernment for priesthood began at a very young age of twelve. In 2009 just after high school, I entered the Congregation of Saint John the Baptist in the Philippines to study for priesthood. During the same period I pursued a University degree and took up Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, major in Animal Science. After completing my Bachelor’s Degree, I received 2 years of noviciate, and a year of temporary profession.
In 2015, the Congregation sent me to Vancouver, Canada to continue my study of Philosophy at the Seminary of Christ the King where I finished in 2018. After discerning and praying in the monastery for several years, God’s calling had never been stronger and I feel that serving in the diocesan is my life’s purpose.
A vocation for the archdiocese of Melbourne will allow me to channel my passion to serve and my commitment for the community. Through much prayer and many adventures as I journey down this path, I pray that God continues to guide me. I ask for your prayers as well!”
Jude, you have our prayers and the community of St Kevin’s welcome you with open hearts.
