294 baptisms in eight months in Nanjing

Nanjing, a city of 6 million people, has a special place in our Mission, because the printing press that undertakes all our Biblical printing works is situated in this City.

In the first 8 months of 2012 the diocese of Nanjing welcomed 294 new members after a long journey of preparation and catechesis. More than 400 catechumens participated in the formative stage and 294 were baptized. Both in this diocese and throughout the country, the Church focuses on the faith formation; training for the mission ahead.
To connect with Christians, all parishes are also using social communication network, including the use of internet, texting, etc.. But, they say, 'do not forget the personal contact and visits to families'.
