FATHER KIET TA
I am Rev. Kiet Anh Ta, a priest of the Diocese of Orange. I was born in Vietnam and I moved to the United States of America in 1995, four days before I turned 21. I received my AA degree at Golden West College in 1999 and a bachelor’s degree in Business at Cal State Fullerton in 2002. During 2002, I also found my vocation in priesthood and applied to the Diocese of Orange. I was accepted and entered St. John’s Seminary in the Spring of 2003. I spent my academic year 2006-2007 at St. Boniface Church in Anaheim, and did my pastoral internship at St. Pius V in Buena Park during 2008-2009. I was ordained on June 12, 2010, and assigned to St. Norbert Church in Orange. After completing my first four -year assignment in this parish successfully, I was called to be the Chaplain at Mater Dei High School in 2014 and remained in this position for five years. In 2019, I was assigned to be a parochial vicar at St. Thomas More Church in Irvine for four years and appointed to Parochial Administrator at Our Lady of La Vang Church in Santa Ana in July 2023.
I would like to thank the former pastor, Father Luan Nguyen, the parish staff, and all who have helped me to begin the new mission in this parish. I look forward to meeting all of you, walking with you in the journey of faith, and working with you for a better and stronger Our Lady of La Vang community. I promise to pray for you and your family as I ask you to pray for me so that we can always “act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with God” (Micah 6:8).
Thank you and God bless!
