Lt. Governor Doug Chin welcomed Father Julio Angkel who was appointed last year as the Coadjutor Bishop of the Diocese of the Caroline Islands. Bishop Angkel is only the second Chuukese to be ordained in the history of the diocese that covers the Republic of Palau and the Federated States of Micronesia. Bishop Angkel is known for his devotion, humility and warmth.
Aloha and mahalo to Bishop Julio Angkel and Chuukese Catholic Community Hawai‘i for upholding your values and traditions, and reaching out to the local community and the Chuukese people.
