A path toward ministry begins at HNU

Weihua Wang, Interdisciplinary Studies major at HNU

Weihua Wang, a native of Guangzhou, China, wanted to pursue ministry in order to better guide her community and answer their questions about God. She volunteers helping lead the youth ministry program in the Chinese Community at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Fremont and wants to do more.

An inquiry with the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley led to her to pursue her foundational studies at Holy Names University, where she learned of the California Catholic Conference Partnership program. She has a child in college and has most recently been a stay-at-home mom. The partnership pricing makes it possible for her to complete her degree.

Today, she is working toward her bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Religious Studies and Philosophy. She has found everyone at Holy Names exceptionally warm and welcoming: from admissions to advising, to faculty members and classmates. “My teachers always take the time to make sure I understand things we are learning about. I feel at home here and am so grateful for this opportunity.”
