Rev. Joseph Kim

parochial vicar

617.328.8666
Father Joseph was born in New York, the younger of two brothers born to Korean-American parents. He lived in multiple states until my family settled in North Carolina, where he studied electrical engineering in college. Eventually his family was transferred to Maryland, where he first thought he was called to religious life among the Capuchin Franciscans. Fr. Joseph came to Boston to visit a friend studying at MIT, but due to his friend's call to active duty, ended up staying at a parish with Fr. Dominic Jung, who in turn put Fr. Joseph in touch with the archdiocesan vocation office. In 2014, Fr. Joseph enrolled in St. John's Seminary and was ordained to the priesthood in May, 2018. Fr. Joseph definitely wants to call Boston his home, and his family is very supportive of his vocation. As his mother once remarked that once he was ordained, he was no longer her son, but the Church's son. We are happy to have Fr. Joseph in our collaborative as the first assignment of his priesthood.

     
   

Van Vuong Nguyen

permanent deacon
617.328.8666

Van Vuong Nguyen was born in Vietnam and is married to Mao Nguyen. The couple has a son, Dan Nguyen, and a daughter, Mai Linh Nguyen. He works as a manufacturing engineer at Symmons Industries. The couple usually attends the 11:30 a.m. Mass at St. Thomas More Parish in Braintree and then bring Holy Communion to the people at Pope Nursing Home. They also visit the Norfolk Prison once a month.

When asked about his vocation to the diaconate, Nguyen said, "Mao and I have been greatly blessed by God and have experienced God in many wonderful ways during our married life. I have a yearning to have a more intimate relationship with God by learning more about him and the Church. I felt that I cannot love God if I don't know him personally. I also wanted to help others to know God better, to have a deeper, more intimate relationship with God. To speak the Good News, to serve where needed and lead others by example in loving care for the poor, sick, lonely and needy. I have been very blessed throughout my life, and I hope, by the grace of God, to be a blessing to others and bring them closer to him."

In addition to his duties as deacon at our collaborative, Van also is assigned to the Archdiocesan Office of Cultural Diversity.
