His parents came from Vietnam for the ceremony and were at St. Anne’s for Mass last Sunday.
Dat met the Salesians through playing soccer as a young person.Among the 45 Salesians present on Thursday was Fr Norm Forde SDB who taught the first day students at Rupertswood in the 1950’s. He has been a Salesian for 60 years and currently teaches at Catholic Theological College Melbourne as well as being guest lecturer in bio-ethics in Rome and Chicago recently.
