About Fr. Kenny
I enjoy traveling. Sometimes huge crowds unsettle me. As an early bird, socializing in the evening is not my forte. I dislike noise, but I love learning new things. Don’t invite me to hike mountains, though. Why would a person ascend a mountain only to find herself having to climb it down (which is the worst part)? But that’s just me.
I’m a Catholic priest of the Diocese of Surabaya. Raised in Jakarta, I’ve lived in Indonesia, the United States, Spain, and Italy. I first sensed my priestly vocation as I was mesmerized by the beauty of Catholic faith expressed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Teaching is my passion. It encourages me to keep researching. If I didn’t have to teach, perhaps I wouldn’t study as hard. Since my diaconal ordination in 2018, I’ve had the privilege of speaking to numerous groups from Indonesia, Singapore, and the United States. By helping you know and love your faith more deeply, I dream of bringing you closer to God, your ultimate source of happiness.
On the side, I play pipe organ and take photos. I’m currently based in Rome, where I work on a thesis on St. Thomas Aquinas, “the wisest among the saints and the saintliest among the wise” (Cardinal Bessarion).
