Top Vatican diplomat Archbishop Gallagher to visit Vietnam next week

April 04, 2024

Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, Secretary for Relations with States and International Organizations of the Holy See, is scheduled to visit Vietnam from April 9 to 14, according to the Office of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Vietnam (CBCV). This is the first visit to Vietnam by the Vatican’s diplomatic chief at the invitation of the CBCV, Father Joseph Dao Nguyen Vu, head of the CBCV Office, announced on Wednesday. In 2011, Pope Benedict XVI appointed a nonresident papal representative to Vietnam. Late last year, Pope Francis appointed Archbishop Marek Zalewski as the first Resident Papal Representative in Vietnam. The appointment was made after the two sides reached an agreement on the Status of the Resident Papal Representative and the Office of the Resident Papal Representative in Vietnam at the 10th Meeting of the Joint Working Group on March 31, 2023.
