On Thursday, November 28th, it was truly a day of thanksgiving for two of our Carmelite Brothers, Joseph Vinh Nguyen, O.Carm. and Joseph Dat Cao, O.Carm., who were ordained to the Priesthood and Diaconate at the Chapel of the Pastoral Center by the imposition of hands of the Most Reverend Louis Nguyen Anh Tuan, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The joyful celebration was attended by many Carmelite friars and other religious, along with family and friends of the newly ordained. Concelebrants at the Mass were Father Mario Esposito, O.Carm., Provincial of the St. Elias Province and Father Joseph Hung Tran, O.Carm., Provincial of the Commissariat of Saint Joseph in Saigon.
Congratulations to Father Joseph Vinh Nguyen and Reverend Brother Joseph Dat Cao on this happy occasion. May God bless you both always!
