Archbishop Paul Tschange In-Nam, the country’s first Asian apostolic delegate, visited Myanmar this week to concelebrate a Mass along with 16 bishops and 22 priests at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Yangon.

About 1,000 parishioners and religious brothers and sisters attended the Mass on Tuesday, during which the delegate urged Myanmar Catholics to “revive their faith”. 

The archbishop also serves as the papal nuncio to the Kingdom of Thailand and the Kingdom of Cambodia and the apostolic delegate to the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
