Bishop skips retirement Mass

HONG KONG (UCAN): Bishop Zhuang Jianjian from the unofficial Church in Shantou did not attend his own retirement Mass after not agreeing to retire.
 
The 88-year-old bishop attended a retirement ceremony held by the Diocese of Shantou but said he did not attend a Mass celebrated by his replacement, Bishop Huang Bingzhang, who was excommunicated until he was accepted by Pope Francis following the Sino-Vatican provisional agreement on the appointment of bishops was signed last September.
