Pope Francis appointed Bishop Louis Nguyen Anh Tuan as apostolic administrator of Ha Tinh diocese on March 19 following the resignation of its bishop.

The pope accepted the resignation of the 76-year-old Dominican Bishop Paul Nguyen Thai Hop and placed the diocese under the care of Bishop Tuan, who currently serves in Ho Chi Minh City Archdiocese.

Bishop Hop became the first bishop of Ha Tinh diocese in 2018, when it was created from territory taken from Vinh diocese.

Bishop Hop, a former head of the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Vietnam, was known for speaking out against violations against human rights and religious freedom.

Bishop Tuan was ordained an auxiliary bishop in 2017. Born in the central province of Quang Nam, the new apostolic administrator was ordained a priest in Ho Chi Minh City Archdiocese in 1999. Between 2001 and 2006, he studied at the John Paul II Pontifical Theological Institute for Marriage and Family Sciences and the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
