Two Chinese bishops recognised by the Holy See were ordained on the mainland on Wednesday, the latest sign of improving ties between Beijing and the Vatican after years of hostility.

Father Joseph Tang Yuange, 53, was ordained as bishop reportedly amid a heavy police presence at Pinganqiao Cathedral in Chengdu, Sichuan province during the feast of St ­Andrew. Journalists were not ­allowed to enter.

Also yesterday, Father Wang Xiaoxun was ordained as coadjutor bishop in the Ankang diocese in Shanxi province.
