The Yichang Diocese is located in the Three Gorges region of Central China. The diocese has an estimated 30,000 Catholics, less than 1% of the overall regional population. Father Li Xiaoguo, diocesan administrator, and I regularly travel through the area. We visit churches and families, celebrating holy days and national holidays. Early in its history, the diocese was administered by Belgian Franciscans. Over the years, many of the church buildings were abandoned or converted to other uses, whereas other churches have been renovated and now have vibrant communities. The photos in this display are from a recent trip and will give you a glimpse of life in the region.
