CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Peter Wu Yishin has been ordained to head the apostolic prefecture of Shaowu, in Fujian province—the third new bishop to be installed in China in a week.

However forty Chinese dioceses remain without bishops.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
