Vietnamese-born Priest Becomes Canada's Youngest Bishop

Bolsavik.com, Posted: Jan 14, 2010

The Archdiocese of Torontos newest auxilliary bishop Vincent Nguyen will be ordained in a ceremony to be streamed live on the Internet. The Vietnamese-born Nguyen will be Canadas youngest bishop and the first one of Asian descent. Pope Benedict XVI elevated Nguyen, 43, whose Vietnamese name is Nguyen Manh Hieu, to the episcopal rank last November. He was made bishop after only 12 years as a priest -- an advancement considered speedy in the Catholic hierarchy.
Nguyen, who came to Canada when he was 18, is currently the Chancellor of Spiritual Affairs and Moderator of the Curia, according to a press release by the Archdiocese of Toronto. He previously headed the Vietnamese Martyrs Mission of Toronto.
