My heart is filled with joy and gratitude for this very special day, the day of my ordination to the diaconate. Together with other seminarians of the Diocese of Gwanju, I was ordained as deacon on the 9th of January 2019. The ordination rite was celebrated by the faithful, lay and religious of the Diocese. I am very happy to celebrate this day with my fellow Assumptionist brothers who flew from other countries to share this memorable experience with me. My ordination to the diaconate is marked with much anticipation and the outpouring of grace from the Lord, the Source of all holy vocations.
I am looking forward for my continuous formation and I am hopeful that my training in the parish and my encounter with the people of God will allow me to prepare myself for my future ministry. Please pray for me and for my brothers that we may remain faithful and steadfast in our commitment to the God, to the Church and its entire people.
