A Philippine priest was installed last week as the first Roman Catholic bishop of Mongolia, a predominantly Buddhist nation with fewer than 200 Catholics.

Wenceslaw Padilla, who has worked in the country since 1992, was installed as bishop in Ulan Bator, the capital, by Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, head of the Vatican's Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.
