Engineer Danny Nouh to be first married Maronite priest ordained in Australia

The Lebanese-Australian engineer Danny Nouh is about to become the “first married man to be ordained to the priesthood in Australia for the Maronite Catholic Church,” according to



Danny’s story 

Nine years ago, Danny was asleep when he heard someone knocking on the door twice. He was the only one who heard it. It sounded just like the knock he heard on TV where Jesus is depicted knocking on a door. At that moment, Danny knew that it’s a call to priesthood. In the beginning, Danny was confused since he had a big career. In 2016, he was ordained as a sub-deacon. Later, he was also appointed Executive Officer of MaroniteCare. Even though he’s earning way less than he did before, Danny says he’s much happier now. He will be ordained at Our Lady of Lebanon Co-Cathedral on 17 March.
