Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Next weekend, November 29, 2014, we will begin our new liturgical calendar year; Pope Francis has proclaimed 2015 a year of
Consecrated life, starting on the First Sunday of Advent and ending on February 2, 2016, the World day of Consecrated life.
This will be a good year for us to pray for more young men and women to answer God’s call and generously join into
consecrated life. For we all know that many dioceses in the United States are short of priests and nuns to serve in parishes, and
many religious houses are sold because of the shortage of vocations. I thought that this is also a good opportunity for me to tell
you a little bit more about me and my religious community.
I am Fr. Joseph Minh Nguyen, a member of the Domus Dei Clerical Society of Apostolic Life. I was born in 1976 in Dong Nai,
Vietnam – one of five Children of Thanh Van Nguyen (deceased) and Buoi Thi Nguyen. I am the second oldest in my family
and have an older sister, a younger brother, and two younger sisters. I’ll be with you for 3 years, if this is God’s will. It’s all
depending on the special needs of my Superior, or the Bishop, that I may have to move to another place.
My whole family left Vietnam and came to the United States in 1995, right after I graduated from high school. We are greatly
blessed by God, and thankful to the U.S government, for the opportunity to emigrate here to live in order to have freedom. My
parents served as police officers for the U.S government in South Vietnam before 1975 and after the communists took control
they took over our house and property. They also put my father in political camp (jail) for more than 5 years. Thereafter, we did
not have many opportunities to go to college or enter religious life. We didn’t have any help from the government either. We had
to work very hard to sustain ourselves by farming, and breeding chickens and pigs.
We first settled in Great Bend, Kansas, a very small town. While there, I went back to high school to study English as well as
other subjects. I once again graduated from high school, this time in Great Bend, in 1996. We lived in Great Bend for a year and
then moved to Lincoln, Nebraska.
In the summer of 1996, while living in Lincoln, I didn’t know what major to study in college. I attended daily Mass and prayed
to God to give me the answer. About two months later, the thought of becoming a priest had overtaken all other thoughts. Along
with respect and honor, I thought I would have more peace in my heart and soul than by pursuing any other occupation. The
mother of a priest who lives in Louisiana told me to contact the Domus Dei Society. I joined Domus Dei in August of 1996.
Domus Dei was founded in 1630 by a Jesuit missionary named Alexander de Rhodes, and the society has a long history of
evangelization. After 1954, when Vietnam was divided in two, many Catholics moved from the Communist North to the South
where they could freely practice their religion. During this time, Domus Dei members helped immigrants adapt to the culture
and environment in their new land. That ended in 1975, when the Communists overtook the South as well. Many Domus Dei
Religious fled the country to the United States, where the mission has continued. The three components to the community’s
charisms are: living together in the spirit of brotherhood and supporting one another in ministries; helping families live
according to the model of the Holy Family; and obeying the local Bishop or Archbishop and carrying out the mission under his
directives.
My Society sent me to St. Joseph Seminary College in Covington, LA and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in
Philosophy in 2004. I then earned a Master of Divinity degree at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans, LA in 2008. I was
ordained as a priest on June, 5th 2010 in Portland, Oregon.
My ministry assignments have included clinical Pastoral Education at Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham, AL, All
Saints Parish in Portland, OR, and at St. Joseph Church in Grand Prairie, TX where I served as a transitional deacon for 6
months. I then served as Associate Pastor at the Co-Cathedral in Houma-Thibodaux, Louisiana for two and a half years as my
very first assignment in the priesthood. Recently, I was at St. Michael in Olympia, WA to help throughout the summer.
I speak Vietnamese, English, and just a little bit of Spanish. I embrace priestly practices from both cultures (Vietnamese and
American). I am here to learn more about how to serve as a priest in an English speaking parish and to get to know more about
American culture so that later, I can be a good shepherd for my own Vietnamese people or for wherever the Lord would lead and
send me.
I hope to get to know you all more by telling me your name when you meet me, so that I may greet you by name when I meet
you again.
Fr. Joseph Minh Nguyen, SDD

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,
El próximo 29 de noviembre del 2014, vamos a iniciar nuestro nuevo año litúrgico; el Papa Francisco ha proclamado 2015 un
Año de la Vida Consagrada, a partir del Primer Domingo de Adviento y terminando el 2 de febrero de 2016, el día Mundial de
la Vida Consagrada. Este será un buen año para que oremos para que más hombres y mujeres jóvenes respondan al llamado de
Dios y generosamente se unan a la vida consagrada. Todos sabemos que muchas Diócesis en los Estados Unidos carecen de
sacerdotes y monjas para servir en parroquias, y muchas casas religiosas se venden debido a la escasez de vocaciones. Pensé
que esta es también una buena oportunidad para que cuente un poco más sobre mí y mi comunidad religiosa.
Yo soy el padre José Minh Nguyen, un miembro de la Sociedad Clerical de Vida Apostólica Domus Dei. Nací en 1976 en
Dong Nai, Vietnam —uno de los cinco hijos de Thanh Van Nguyen (fallecido) y Buoi Thi Nguyen. Yo soy el segundo de los
hermanos; tengo una hermana mayor, un hermano más joven, y dos hermanas menores. Voy a estar con ustedes durante 3 años,
si Dios quiere. Todo depende de las necesidades especiales de mi Superior, o si el Obispo decide trasladarme a otro lugar.
Toda mi familia salió de Vietnam y llegó a Estados Unidos en 1995, justo después de que me gradué de la preparatoria. Hemos
sido bendecidos grandemente por Dios, y estamos agradecidos al gobierno de Estados Unidos, por la oportunidad de inmigrar y
vivir aquí en libertad. Mis padres sirvieron como oficiales de policía para el gobierno de Estados Unidos en Vietnam del Sur
antes de 1975 y después de que los comunistas tomaron el control perdimos la casa y la propiedad. También pusieron a mi
padre en el campo de prisioneros políticos (la cárcel) por más de 5 años. A partir de entonces, no tuvimos muchas
oportunidades de ir a la universidad o entrar en la vida religiosa. No teníamos ningún tipo de ayuda por parte del gobierno
tampoco. Tuvimos que trabajar muy duro para mantenernos, en la agricultura y la cría de pollos y cerdos.
Primero nos instalamos en Great Bend, Kansas, un pueblo muy pequeño. Una vez allí, entré de nuevo a la preparatoria para
estudiar inglés, así como otras materias. Una vez más me gradué de la preparatoria, esta vez en Great Bend, en 1996. Vivimos
en Great Bend durante un año y luego nos fuimos a Lincoln, Nebraska.
En el verano de 1996, mientras vivía en Lincoln, yo no sabía qué carrera estudiar en la universidad. Iba a misa diaria y rezaba
para que Dios me diera la respuesta. Unos dos meses después, la idea de ser sacerdote había superado a todos los demás
pensamientos. Además de respeto y honor, yo pensé que tendría más paz en mi corazón y en mi alma que ejerciendo cualquier
otra ocupación. La madre de un sacerdote que vive en Louisiana me dijo que me pusiera en contacto con la Sociedad Domus
Dei. Me uní a Domus Dei en Agosto de 1996.
Domus Dei fue fundada en 1630 por un misionero jesuita llamado Alejandro de Rodas, y la sociedad tiene una larga historia de
evangelización. Después de 1954, cuando Vietnam se dividió en dos, muchos católicos se trasladaron desde el Norte
comunista hacia el Sur donde podían practicar libremente su religión. Durante este tiempo, los miembros de Domus Dei
ayudaron a los inmigrantes a adaptarse a la cultura y el medio ambiente en su nueva tierra. Eso terminó en 1975, cuando los
comunistas tomaron control también del Sur. Muchos religiosos de Domus Dei huyeron hacia los Estados Unidos, donde la
misión ha continuado. Los tres carismas de la comunidad son: vivir juntos en un espíritu de fraternidad y apoyo mutuo en los
ministerios; ayudar a las familias a vivir según el modelo de la Sagrada Familia; y obedecer al Obispo local o Arzobispo y
llevar a cabo la misión bajo sus directivas.
Mi Sociedad me envió al Colegio del Seminario de San José en Covington, Louisiana y me gradué con una licenciatura en
Filosofía en 2004. Luego obtuve una Maestría en Divinidad en el Seminario de Notre Dame en Nueva Orleans, Lousiana en
2008. Fui ordenado sacerdote el 5 de junio de 2010 en Portland, Oregon.
Mis asignaciones ministeriales han incluido la Educación Pastoral Clínica en Princeton Baptist Medical Center en Birmingham,
Alabam; Parroquia de Todos los Santos en Portland, Oregón, y en la iglesia de San José en Grand Prairie, Texas, donde serví
como diácono transitorio durante 6 meses. Luego serví como pastor asociado en la Co-Catedral en Houma-Thibodaux,
Louisiana durante dos años y medio como mi primera asignación en el sacerdocio. Recientemente, estuve en San Miguel en
Olympia, WA para ayudar en el verano.
Hablo inglés, vietnamita, y sólo un poco de español. Abrazo prácticas sacerdotales de ambas culturas (vietnamita y
estadounidense). Estoy aquí para aprender más acerca de cómo servir como sacerdote en una parroquia de habla inglés y para
conocer más sobre la cultura estadounidense, para que más tarde pueda ser un buen pastor para mi propio pueblo vietnamita o
donde el Señor me dirija y me envíe.
Espero conocerlos a todos ustedes más, diciéndome sus nombres cuando los conozca, para que yo los pueda saludar por su
nombre cuando los encuentre de nuevo.
Padre José Nguyen Minh, SDD

Spiritual Adoption - 8th Month

Dear spiritual adoption family,
Thank you for your prayers. Wow, it's
getting really crowded in here! I'm growing
an average of a half a pound each week now
and will come close to doubling my weight
by D-day! These last two months are
critical. I am now
receiving precious
immunities from my mother that will help
me battle a number of diseases until I am
about six months old and able to begin
building up my own. Please pray that my
mother receives the support she needs to
sleep well, eat well, and prepare for the
day she will bring me forth into the world.
She is probably feeling anxious and
exhausted, and in need of the peace that
only God can give.

Today as we celebrate Christ the King, we hear
Jesus say, “…whatever you did for one of the
least brothers and sisters of mine, you did for
me.”
Knowing that we find the face of Christ in
the poor, this month, through your gifts, the
Society of St. Vincent de Paul was able to
serve several families, providing assistance
with food, utilities, and rent.
“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very
much. I beg you to spare the life of [baby’s
name] the unborn baby that I have
spiritually adopted who is in danger of
abortion.”
- Prayer of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Thank You!

“The most popular and powerful excuse we give for
not praying, or not praying more, or not praying
regularly, is that we have no time. The only effective
answer to that excuse, I find, is a kind of murder. You
have to kill something, you have to say no to
something else, in order to make time to pray.”

St. Joseph the Worker Council
15136 is ever present in our parish
and community, organizing events
from BBQs to Wreath Sales. The
Knights of St. Joseph the Worker send our
gratitude to all those who have participated and
continue to contribute to our order. Together,
WE provide support to the charitable causes of
the St. Andrew/St. Cosmas and Damian
Community.
If you purchased a Christmas Wreath
from The Knights of Columbus,
please be sure to pick it up this
weekend at the Christmas Tree Lot.

Catholic Community Services’
Adopt-A-Family
program needs
your help to provide a joyous holiday
to families in Pierce County. At
Thanksgiving
and
Christmas,
families
traditionally come together to share a meal and
exchange gifts; for low-income families facing
challenges, being able to afford and organize
such holidays is an overwhelming task. However,
enjoying this tradition can be an uplifting
occasion for all family members and brings a
sense of stability to their lives.
Please consider adopting a family this year.
You may contribute $30 to provide a
Thanksgiving meal, or request a family's wish list
in order to provide Christmas
gifts. For more information,
please contact Penny Grellier
at 253-502-2708 or email
PennyG@ccsww.org.
We can use your time and talents gentlemen of
St. Andrew and St. Cosmas.
REMINDER: Brother Knights our next meeting
will be held, at 7pm on Monday, November 24
at St. Andrew-Building B. We hope for your
presence as we plan for upcoming events.
