Saint's home to house future priests

Vianney House to house men interested in the priesthood

Father Joseph Phuong Nguyen, vocations director of the Archdiocese of Vancouver, shows off a dessert spread while hosting his VIP event (vocations in progress) at Vianney House April 29. Nathan Rumohr / The B.C. Catholic.
Not sure if the seminary is for you? Father Joseph Phuong Nguyen can help. I recently caught up with the archdiocese vocations director to talk about his new home for men interested in the priesthood:
Father Nguyen hopes his “simple home” can attract men to the priesthood just as St. John Vianney attracted many pilgrims to his country parish in France in the 1800s. 

Vianney House, named after this patron saint of priests, will house men seriously considering the priesthood.

“Vianney House is a place where men can discern their vocation without life’s distractions,” said Father Nguyen.
