Father Justin Huang grew up in Richmond, BC, the third of three brothers. Though not raised Catholic, he started going to Mass when he was 13. After a powerful experience of God’s love through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, he felt called to the Holy priesthood at the age of 16. He is thrilled to be pastor of St. Anthony of Padua, Archdiocese of Vancouver, (2020) and is very thankful to God to be there. Fr. Justin loves God and the Church with all his heart and tries his best to give God’s love and truth to others! He also loves prayer, discussions about anything serious, and loves sports, especially tennis, hockey, Wushu and Volleyball. Because he wrote a thesis on dialogue, he loves asking and answering questions, so that we can know the truth better. If there’s anything he can do for you, just ask! He’ll do his best to help. For more Thoughts and Musings of Fr.Justin Huang visit his blog at The Just Measure
