Volunteers in Camden Diocese Translate Bishops’ Charter into Vietnamese


CAMDEN, N.J. (CNS) – Rod Herrera, director of Child and Youth Protection for the Diocese of Camden, and Vietnamese Catholic leaders of South Jersey presented Bishop Dennis J. Sullivan with a bit of history. They gave the bishop a copy of the first Vietnamese translation of the U.S. bishops’ “Charter for the Protection of “Children and Young People” and their “Essential Norms” document that assures that all dioceses and eparchies adhere to the charter. Herrera was joined in presenting the translation by Thu Nguyen, director of Most Precious Blood Parish’s Vietnamese American Cultural and Education Center in West Collingswood, and Deacon Kim Nguyen, of Most Precious Blood Parish. The newly translated documents have since been sent to the U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops and are now available on the U.S. bishops’ website, along with the English- and Spanish-language versions.
