Meet one of our members! Fr. Francis Vu Tran, SCJ, is a member of the U.S. Province studying for his doctorate in biblical theology in Rome. After completing his licentiate this year he will spend another year in language studies before he begins work on his advanced studies leading toward his doctoral dissertation. When asked why he made the request to study in Rome Fr. Francis said that “I asked to do my studies in Rome for several reasons but one of the most important is that I want to get a better sense of what it means to belong to an international congregation, to get to know who the Priests of the Sacred Heart are.” In Rome, he lives at the SCJs’ international college with priests and seminarians from around the world studying for advanced degrees, just as he is. The community lives alongside the General Curia, the headquarters of the community. Click here to read more.
