The new auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Orange in California is Father Thanh Thai Nguyen. Nguyen came as a refugee with his family to the U.S. from Vietnam. Bishop Felipe J. Estevez of St. Augustine, Florida, where Nguyen had been serving before his new appointment, said, “Father Thanh knows the plight of refugees, and he understands their journey seeking a safe home and the ability to support their families. He has a genuine gift when it comes to ministering to people of diverse cultures.”
