Rev. Johnny Dang
Ask Fr. Johnny:
Dear parishioners of St. Oscar Romero,
As a new Administrator of St. Oscar Romero Parish, I would like to introduce myself to you all.
I am Father Johnny Dang, a priest from the Diocese of San Bernardino. I was born and raised from a family of six children. I am the second oldest. I have one older brother, two younger brothers and two younger sisters.
I immigrated to the United States with my entire family in 1999. We settled in San Diego, California since then until now.
I entered the Divine Word College Seminary in Epworth, Iowa in 2001. I graduated with a BA degree in philosophy in 2008. After I graduated, I entered the Novitiate in Techny, Chicago in 2008. And then I left the Novitiate in 2009.
I came back to San Diego, and then entered the Serra House, the Formation House of the Diocese of San Bernardino, in 2009. I studied 1st year of theology at the Assumption Seminary in San Antonio, Texas from 2010 to 2011. I then transfered to St. John’s Seminary in Camarillo, Los Angeles in 2011. I studied my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year of theology at St. John’s Seminary. I graduated from St. John’s Seminary in 2015.
I was ordained a Deacon in December 19, 2014 and then a Priest in May 29, 2015. After I was ordained a priest, I was assigned to different parishes, such as St. Francis of Assisi in La Quinta, St. Catherine of Alexandria in Temecula, St. Patrick in Moreno Valley and now is St. Oscar Romero in Eastvale.
Although my assignment to St. Oscar Romero temporarily just for one year. I am looking forward to get to know you all and to work with you to build our parish community in proclaiming the Good News and celebrating the Sacraments. My hope is that St. Oscar Romero will grow in number, in faith and in the Love of Christ Jesus.
May our Good Lord Jesus bless us all,
Father Johnny Dang
