A Farewell to Father Quang Nguyen

The Faculty of Saint John's Seminary was joined by the Vietnamese Seminarians from Saint John's and the Redemptorist community in bidding farewell to Father Quang Nguyen.  After several years of studies at Saint John's, Father Quang begins a course of studies in catechetics at Christendom College in Fort Royal, Virginia.

In the course of an authentic Vietnamese Banquet in the Rector's Apartment, Monsignor Moroney toasted Father Quang as a "son of Vietnam, faithful Catholic daughter of the Church," and prayed that "through the intercession of Our Lady of La Vang" God might prosper his ministry and help him to recall the continuing affection and friendship of the community of Saint John's Seminary.
