Sister My Houng Pham transfers vows to Sisters of Providence congregation

Sister My Huong PhamOn Feb. 25, Sister My Huong Pham, a native of Bien Hoa, Vietnam, transferred her perpetual vows to the congregation of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods during a Mass in the Church of the Immaculate Conception. During the vow ceremony, she received the white and black cross pendant of the Sisters of Providence.

Sister My Huong entered the Vietnamese Dominican Sisters congregation in 1991, and professed perpetual vows in 1999.

During her time with the Vietnamese Dominican order, Sister My Huong ministered as a teacher, school administrative assistant and a missionary to poor suburban and rural areas.

She eventually traveled to the United States, where she received a bachelor’s degree in theology at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

Her time at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods with the Sisters of Providence had a profound impact on her, and in 2015, Sister My Huong expressed her desire to transfer her vows to the Sisters of Providence.

During the transition time, she ministered in health care at Providence Health Care at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. In September 2017, she began a residency in clinical pastoral education at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Ind., in the Evansville Diocese. †
