We are excited to announce that Archbishop Bernard Hebda has named soon-to-be Father Joseph Nguyên as our next Parochial Vicar (Associate Pastor) of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and School. He will serve alongside me and help lead our wonderful parish. Many of you will remember him as Deacon Joseph Nguyên as he served as our summer deacon in 2021. He generously gave of himself during his time here last summer and I am certain that he will be a great witness of a disciple who lives out of a generous spirit. He connected well with our youth and also enjoyed visiting the homebound. He built relationships with parishioners of all ages and will be able to build upon that foundation as he begins his priestly service here. I am very excited to welcome him back as a brother priest now and look forward to having another priest back at the rectory. He is also a good cook, which I am grateful for 🙂 He also enjoys kayaking, racquetball, and spending time with parishioners.
As the Father loves me, so also I love you!
