Ordination Vietnam


In his homily Bishop Joseph Tran Van Toan said: “In the Eucharist, Jesus expressed an unconditional love, a humble love, a self-destructive and self-giving love for humanity. Therefore, each person is also called to give his or her life to the other to continue his mission of salvation.”

At the end of the Mass, in spirit of thanksgiving to God, father Joseph Pham Dinh Ai, Provincial Superior, on behalf of all the SSS religious, thanked the concelebrants, religious, the benefactors, their relatives and the entire community.

We thank the Lord to give our Congregation these young religious who are following in the footsteps of Father Eymard to light the Eucharistic fire everywhere. May the Lord through the intercessions of our Mother, Mary Queen of the Cenacle, and of Saint Peter Julian Eymard, our Founder, grant them strength and love so that they will always be enthusiastic and courageous to live their charism and carry out our Eucharistic mission.


Father Joseph Tran Minh Hieu, SSS
