Xuan Hiep, Vietnam, 2 July 2016 - Last Saturday morning, eight salesian deacons of VietNam province were ordained to the priesthood through the invocation of the Holy Spirit and the imposition of hands by the Most Reverend Vincent Nguyen Van Ban, Bishop of Ban Me Thuot diocese, at Tam Hai church in Thu Đuc dist., HCMC. Present at the mass were Fr. Joseph Nguyen Van Quang, the provincial, about 130 salesian and diocesan priests, superiors and religious of some congregations, parents of the candidates, their relatives, benefactors, friends and young people in Salesian settings and the faithfuls of Tam Hai parish. The number of the participants was about 1200. In his homily, addressing in a particular way to the priests to be, Bishop Vincent reminded them of the role of a good shepherd: being faithful to the daily prayers to keep an intimate union with God; and keeping the enthusiasm in proclaiming the Word of God to everyone, especially to the youth.
