Hello, St. Thomas More Community!

I was born in Vietnam and grew up in St. Paul, MN. My family are immigrants from the war. Due to the imprisonment of my father, who was a soldier of the war, the U.S. government gave us the opportunity to start anew. We settled in St. Paul, MN, where I learned to love the cold, tennis, and the Minnesota State Fair.

I attended the University of St. Thomas, MN, for college. Drawn to the Society of Jesus’s missionary zeal and Ignatian spirituality, I entered the Jesuits after college. Our life and formation as Jesuits takes us many places. I am delighted to return to St. Paul and serve as a newly ordained priest for the St. Thomas More community. Thank you for welcoming me back home!
