Most of our Friars receive advanced degrees in Theology to either minister as a Priest or a Brother. But many of our friars are still receiving their undergraduate degrees! Congratulations to both Friar Joseph Cupertino Nhuong (pictured on the left) who graduated in May with a Bachelor of Theology degree from the Franciscan Seminary in Vietnam. Friar Joseph Cupertino will be assigned to work in our Leprosarium in Van Mon (North Vietnam). Congratulations also to Friar Joseph Martin Hoang who graduated from the Mexican American Catholic College in San Antonio, Texas! Friar Joseph Martin will make his solemn profession of vows on August 2, 2017 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Hermosa Beach, CA at 7PM. Come and Join us for the celebration! Please keep both these student friars, and all our student friars, in your prayers. Read biographies of all our Student Friars on our “Meet Our Friars” page.
