Welcome to our April 2008 Newsletter!

Unexplored frontiers…

Claretians responsible for our presence in China gathered in Macau at the beginning of April. During the four day meeting we were accompanied by our Superior General, Fr. Joseph Abella. After evaluating our present situation in China, we asked ourselves what the “unexplored frontiers” are for our ministry in China. When we look back into the past, we see how the pioneers like Fr. Matteo Ricci and his companions were able to enter into the Chinese culture and bring the Gospel message with great results. We named these frontiers, looked for a support system and made some concrete plans. You will read more about these in detail in the coming issues of our newsletter… but for now we invite you to pray with us that we may always do what God wants us to do!
