Illness forces Bishop Folda of Fargo Diocese to take some time off
Bishop John Folda was diagnosed with hepatitis A, according to WDAY-TV.
Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease.
Folda contracted the infection through contaminated food while attending a conference for newly ordained bishops in Italy last month.
Folda has been out of the office since Oct. 10.
He’s expected to make a full recovery and start taking appointments in the coming days.
