Delayed ordinations 
in Shanghai

SHANGHAI (SE): Seven deacons were ordained to the priesthood in a packed St. Ignatius Cathedral in Shanghai, on March 17, by the 95-year-old Bishop Aloysius Luxian.

The ordinations had been postponed for some months due to the illness of Bishop Jin. However, at 95-years-of-age, local people are asking if he may be the oldest bishop in the world still active in ordaining new priests.

The cathedral is often referred to as the Xujiahui Cathedral and is in the Xuhui district of Shanghai.
