HOF051: Dinh Thanh Son
As a Catholic who once had ambitions to join the priesthood, Dinh Thanh Son found himself facing a bleak future under the Communist regime.
Not allowed by the government to enrol in university due to his religion, Dinh agreed to join an uncle to leave the country in 1979. Arriving in Indonesia and then resettling in Canada under the sponsorship of the
diocese ò Montreal, Dinh would soon enrol in philosophical and theological studies. He was ordained a priest in 1987.
