First priest ordained in 30 years in Laos

Vientiane (AsiaNews) – The first ordination of a priest in Laos in 30 years is scheduled to take place on June 16. The ordination of Br Sophone Vilavongsy, a 32-year-old Oblate missionary of Mary Immaculate, was supposed to take place on December 8 last year, but the government stopped it at the last moment, requiring the postponement of the historic ceremony to an unspecified date.
