Roman Catholic Bishop John J. Ward of Los Angeles, who had been one of three surviving American bishops who participated in the groundbreaking Second Vatican Council in the early 1960s, died Sunday in Culver City. He was 90. Ward died of complications from old age, according to a statement from his family. A Los Angeles native, Ward served the local archdiocese for just over 50 years as a priest and bishop, establishing several benchmarks along the way. He was the last priest ordained by the first archbishop of Los Angeles, John J. Cantwell, and the first graduate of St. John's Seminary in Camarillo to become a bishop.

Pope Benedict XVI has appointed a new auxiliary bishop to help lead Orange County's Roman Catholic diocese, church officials announced Monday. Rev. Cirilo Flores, 60, of St. Norbert's Church in Orange will help shepherd 1.2 million parishioners by making parish visits and overseeing confirmations, among other duties, said the diocese's Most Rev. Bishop Tod D. Brown. Flores fills the post vacated by Bishop Jaime Soto, appointed coadjutor bishop of Sacramento last fall. Smaller dioceses have a single bishop, but Orange County's large and diverse population requires two auxiliary bishops, Brown said, noting: "We aren't able to be in three places at the same time."

Steinbock, auxiliary bishop of Orange and featured guest at the annual diocesan press luncheon Thursday, was still the object of some good-natured ribbing from his superior, Bishop William R.

This wasn't a pastoral visit. After Hurricane Katrina, there was nobody left to minister to. Roman Catholic Bishop Dominic Luong said he needed to see for himself the damage done to the Vietnamese community he helped bring together three decades ago. On Wednesday, in the middle of a five-day trip to the Gulf Coast to minister to Vietnamese evacuees, Luong traveled to Versailles, a settlement in East New Orleans that had been home to 10,000 immigrants.

James Patrick Shannon, a former bishop of the Catholic Church whose liberal stances on social issues in the 1960s led to his being labeled a heretic and his resignation, died Aug. 28. He was 82.

It was 1985, and ugly rumors were spreading among African Americans about their newest neighbors. Word had it that immigrants from Vietnam were getting big government grants and prime jobs. And there were darker accusations as well, blaming the disappearance of neighborhood pets on the strange eating habits of the refugees from half a world away.
