Taizé Prayer Around the Cross is held in the church the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 7 pm and livestreamed on youtube.com/thecasafrc. Taizé prayer consists of meditative singing, Scripture readings, and periods of silence in order to reach a contemplative state. This style of prayer emerged from an ecumenical community in Taizé, France. Short chants, repeated over and over, give a meditative character. Using just a few words, the chants express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind. As the words are sung many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being. All are welcome to come and join in this contemplative prayer. This service lasts approximately 35 minutes.

Fr. Vincent Nguyen, OFM
Vice-Rector
vnguyen@thecasa.org

Fr. Vincent Nguyen, OFM comes from a family with eight siblings. His father was a political prisoner for seven years after the fall of Saigon. Because of this, his whole family was allowed to take a political refuge in 1994 to the U.S.A., where his family settled in the city of Huntington Beach, California. 

He joined the Franciscan Province of Saint Barbara in 2003 and made solemn profession in 2009. He was assigned to the Casa in 2013 for a year to have a pastoral experience and to learn the program of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) at Thunderbird hospital. He was ordained at Sts. Simon & Jude parish in Huntington Beach, CA in 2017, where he served before his assignment at the Casa.

Father Vincent is known as a “funny priest” for his great sense of humor, especially when he delivers his homily. He created the San Damiano Crucifix in the Our Lady of the Angels Church and has a great love of priestly ministry and liturgy.

Br. Matt Ryan, OFM
Pastoral Assistant

brothermatt@thecasa.org

Br. Matt Ryan, OFM, serves as a pastoral assistant at the Casa. As a simply professed friar, he is in formation and is spending time serving the community. He will make a final discernment about a solemn profession to the Order of Friars Minor, as well as the call to the priesthood.

 

One of the many blessings of religious life is the opportunity to be part of so many significant milestones, crossroads, and important moments in people's lives. The sacraments of the Church are all such moments, and Br. Matt is grateful for this opportunity to grow spiritually, to heal, and to be transformed in the same way so many people here grow, heal, and are transformed. He hopes to nurture those fruits in others as they grow in him.

 

Br. Matt entered the Order at the age of forty-six as a later-in-life vocation. God was nudging him to discern his life, as He does with all of us in diverse ways. Before embarking on this journey, he served as a public defender for 13 years in Kentucky. While it was challenging work, it was most rewarding when he was able to help people effect substantial change toward sobriety, employment, and away from criminal detention. But God was calling him to something more.

 

Br. Matt will complete his pastoral year in Summer 2024 and is working to earn a Master of Divinity from the Catholic Theological Union. He will then seek a diaconate placement in the fall. Br. Matt is thankful for this beautiful community of people who call the Casa their spiritual home and for all the prayers and support he receives.
