Maui Korean MLC

Sang Joon Thomas Park (박상준 또마스) made his first vows on January 1 1989.

"In 1993, Bros. Thomas Park and Timothy Kim went to Hawaii to join the Marianist Center Community in Honolulu. For a time, they took English lessons at the University of Hawaii. Soon they began to minister to the Korean Catholic community on Maui."

"Thomas Park helped to organize a Korean Family of Mary group. Beginning with only a handfull of people, there are now (1993) twenty-five members including several married couples. The group has developed an active formation and recruitment program, and have established ties with Family of Mary groups in Seoul. The Seoul Family of Mary Center has been supportive of the Maui group with both financial help and Marianist literature in Korean"

"The lay director of the Maui Family of Mary is Ms. Teresa Lee. She is the cousin of Brother Thomas and has been in the U.S. for almost twenty years and brings a great deal of energy and talent to her work in organizing this group of lay Marianists."

Provincial Timothy Eden - PAC November 15, 1993.
