Christopher Villanoueva, Joshua Nash and Thuan Bui are all studying to become Catholic priests through the Order of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate at St Mary’s Seminary in Melbourne. They are currently touring Australia visiting Oblate parishes to talk about their vocation.

With its connection to Tea Tree Gully parish which is under the care of Oblates, Gleeson invited the seminarians to discuss their calling with students.

During their visit they also met with Year 12 Religious Education students who were able to ask questions relating to their Independent Investigation as a primary source for their Stage 2 RE assessment piece.

APRIM Adam Cibich said it was an “invaluable experience” for students to be able to hear the seminarians talk about their vocation and ask questions.

“We are very grateful for Joshua, Christopher and Thuan visiting and spending time with us here at Gleeson College.

“We also thank Fr Leo at St David’s for supporting this special visit,” he said.
