Four SVD Bishops met somewhere in the US

There are 47 SVD Bishops, including both active and retired, in the Church. Four of them met each other during a certain conference in the US recently and all of them are linked with Africa.

Bishop Jorge worked in Angola before and all other three worked in Ghana. Bishop Carlos and myself were sent to Ghana in the same year, 1986, and Bishop Frank was a novice master of Ghana province while we were in Ghana. It was quite refreshing to meet old friends.
