Vigil continues at Chinese parish church slated for demolition
August 30, 2017
Catholics in Changzhi, China, are continuing a vigil outside a church in Wangcun, where local officials have made plans for the demolition of the parish property.
After blocking a bulldozer, parishioners remained on the site through the night, guarding against the possibility that officials would begin the demolition under cover of darkness.
