Chapel confiscated in Laos

In February, officials in Laos confiscated a Catholic chapel in the Savannakhek province, forcing the faithful to worship outside on Holy Saturday and without a priest.
On Saturday, three local Catholics were arrested and questioned by security officials after they removed a closure notice which was posted on the main door of the chapel by government officials in February. 
The faithful had also gathered outside the chapel to celebrate Palm Sunday.
Sister Seusy said priests from elsewhere are still being prevented from providing pastoral services for local Catholics [more].
