SAN DIEGO (AP) - Church officials say the bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego is being treated at a hospital after suffering a stroke.

A church statement says Bishop Cirilo Flores was stricken Wednesday while in his office at the Diocesan Pastoral Center.

Monsignor Steven F. Callahan said Thursday that Flores is “alert and in good spirits.”

He’s expected to remain in the hospital for a few days.

The bishop was appointed in September 2013, when he was 65. He succeeded Bishop Robert Brom.
