By Fr. Ambrose Pereira, SDB

       Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, 9 August 2022 -- The Priestly Ordination of Fr Peter Nguyen Hoai Van, sdb was held on 6 August 2022 at the National Shrine of Mary Help of Christians, Boroko. ‘Go into the world and preach the Gospel to all creation’, Mk 16:15 was his priestly motto.

The Glorification of Jesus and 3. The need to ‘Listen to Him’. He then encouraged the newly ordained to be ‘a Man of God, a person of discernment, a man of prayer and to love Don Bosco’.

       The singing at the celebration was led by Don Bosco Technological Institute, Boroko. The processions at the entrance and the offertory were led by the Vietnamese community. They represented his parents and family who joined the celebrations via video link.

       The Newly ordained thanked the Lord for the Gift of the Priesthood. He expressed his gratitude to his parents for their silent sacrifice and unconditional love. He thanked the Couples for Christ choir, the Vietnamese community and all who have helped him follow the Call of Christ.
