Memphis, Oct 13, 2021
Greetings to you and to your loved ones.
I am Father Brandon Hiep Nguyen, member of the Congregation of the Divine Word Missionary. I have been the pastor to the Sacred Heart Church, Memphis, TN. four months now. And you know that I am still using the GPS when I go to visit my parishioners or when I want to go around the city. I am still getting to know people and places and am thankful for the generosity of our parishioners and friends. They really make me feel at home here now.
Sacred Heart Church is a multicultural parish which gathers many ethnic groups and cultures. For many years, we faithfully serve our brothers and sisters who speak English, Spanish and Vietnamese. We are very committed responding to the need of brothers and sisters who are unable to communicate in English; therefore, we have our English, Spanish and Vietnamese masses every weekend. We are very conscious with the Mission Statement of our parish which says:
“A community of diverse peoples committed to growing
together into the fullness of the body of Christ,
through active participation in the liturgy & faithful discipleship.
We seek to share Christ’s love with those around us,
as we share Christ’s mission of working
for the reign of God on earth.”
I would like to invite you to look on our website and if it is possible, I wish to have you, in person, to visit our Sacred Heart Church. I am so proud of my parishioners. Though our space of worship is under the construction right now, we come together and participate actively in the weekend masses. We are blessed with a numerous young people who engage in youth activities, catechism class and the ministries available the community.
I look forward to welcoming you into our life and let us together praise God and become God’s instrument of Peace and Hope.
May the Sacred Heart of Jesus bless you and protect your family.
Fr. Brandon Hiep Nguyen, SVD
