Have you gone through grief or are you going through a rough patch currently? Father Danny unpacks his understanding on grief and loss and how it impacts individuals as well as a community on a whole.
He drops a bombshell on how his family faced backlash and how it has affected him personally, his family as well as his parish. Despite tribulation, listen to how Father Danny uses these limitations and turns it around for the good.
Father Danny Nouh's life is a remarkable journey of faith and dedication. He began his career as a civil engineer, working on prestigious projects like the M5 East Tunnel and the Iron Cove Bridge duplication project. Yet, his close relationship with his faith and devotion to St. Rita were always at the core of his being.
In 2009, Father Danny experienced a profound calling during an ordinary moment when he heard a mysterious knock sound. His immediate reaction was one of disbelief: "How can I be a priest when I'm married and have children?" However, he couldn't ignore the spiritual calling that had entered his life. Undeterred by doubt, he embarked on a remarkable path, studying theology part-time while continuing his work as a civil engineer on major projects. In 2016, he took the first step toward priesthood by being ordained as a sub-deacon. His dedication led him to become a Deacon in 2017, and finally, in 2018, he achieved his dream of becoming a priest.
Today, Father Danny Nouh serves as the Parish Priest at St. Joseph Church in Croydon, where he continues to nurture the spiritual well-being of his congregation. His influence extends beyond the parish, as he also holds the position of Episcopal Vicar for clergy and actively participates in the College of Consultors, representing his peers on the council of priests.
One of his significant contributions lies in his involvement with the vocational committee, where he plays a pivotal role in nurturing new vocations and guiding individuals on their path to ordination. Father Danny's life story serves as an inspiring example of answering a higher calling and exemplifying unwavering faith and service to both God and the community.
