Tight security at Chinese bishop’s ordination; excommunicated prelate takes part

Catholic World News - November 30, 2011

Amid security scans and police dogs, Father Peter Luo Xuegang was ordained coadjutor bishop of Yibin, a city of 4.5 million in south-central China, on November 30. The Diocese of Yibin has seven priests and 30,000 Catholics.

Bishop Luo’s consecration was approved by both the Holy See and state authorities. Contrary to the wishes of the Holy See, however, an excommunicated bishop--Paul Lei Shiyin--joined in the consecration.
