Another bishop ordained in China

Catholic World News - September 30, 2010

With the approval of both the Holy See and Chinese government authorities, Bishop Peter Wu Junwei was consecrated as bishop of Yuncheng on September 26. The east-central Chinese city has a population of 4.9 million; the diocese has 15,000 laity, 30 priests, and 40 nuns.

The new bishop is a descendant of St. Peter Wang Anbang, a secular Franciscan martyr who was canonized in 2001. “The diocesan community has greatly rejoiced to learn that Bishop Wu thanked the Holy Father for his appointment, professing a sincere loyalty to the Pope and the universal Church,” according to the Fides news agency.
