(ANS - Ulaanbaatar) - When Mongolia became a democratic country in the early 1990s, the government requested diplomatic relations with the Holy See and the sending of Catholic missionaries.

Now that the Catholic Church celebrates its 25th anniversary in Mongolia, Fr Václav Klement, Councilor of the Salesian Region of East Asia-Oceania, recalls what has been done so far and looks at the future of the mission in the country.
