Bishop Joseph Nguyen of Kamloops, who was ordained this summer, traveled to Rome for what some have affectionately called "bishop school."

There, he met Pope Francis.

Bishop Nguyen is a former refugee from Vietnam. He was ordained a priest in Vancouver, where he served the church for many years before Pope Francis called him to the episcopacy. Read more about him here.
