My name is Truong Son Cao Nguyen, but most people call me Son. I was born in Bien Hoa, Vietnam. My family moved to America when I was four-years-old. I come from a family of seven siblings and I am the youngest in the family. My parents are faithful Catholics and they are active in their church community.
There are many reasons I decided to enter the seminary. One of the reasons was that my parents were loving parents that always encouraged me to live a religious life. They did this mainly by setting examples such as being involved in church and showing me love when I most needed it. The second reason is that God has really blessed my family and me through many struggles and successes. Lastly, the reason that really opened me up to God was finding peace and happiness in my heart after visiting St. Joseph Seminary.
I am currently at St. Mary Seminary to deepen my growth for God and to prepare myself to serve his people out of love for all the blessing he has given me through family, friends, and supporters in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
