Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Monday, 4 March 2019 is Roman Catholic Diocese of Kengtung.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Kengtung (Lat: Diocesis Kengtunghensis) is a diocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in Burma.
Erected in 1927 as the Apostolic Prefecture of Kengtung, the prefecture was created from territory in the Apostolic Vicariate of Eastern Burma.
In 1950, the Prefecture was elevated to an apostolic vicariate. In 1955, the vicariate was elevated to a full diocese and became suffragan to the Archdiocese of Taunggyi.
With the increases in the Catholic population, in 1975 the apostolic prefecture of Lashio was split off from the diocese of Kengtung, eventually expanding to the Diocese of Lashio.
The current bishop is Peter Louis Cakü, appointed in 2001.
