Welcome to the China-Macau Bulletin: Novemeber 2012

“May the Apostles Be Friends”

The Feast of St. Anthony M. Claret in Macau gathered many of our friends in a celebration of ‘friendship’ in the diocesan seminary. 

What unites the missionaries of different congregations in Macao is our common mission in this frontier of China; and we renewed our mission commitment from the very place, from the same chapel, where many of our older missionaries in the past started their journey of evangelization to China and other countries.

The simple event started with the testimony of a convert to Christianity, the present Superior of the Jesuit Fathers in Macao, Fr. Beda Lau.

It was followed by a Eucharist concelebrated by 40 priests, including the Chancellor of the Hong Kong Diocese, the Administrator of the Macao Diocese (presiding), 17 Mainland Chinese priests who were attending a retreat and a good number of fellow priests.

Our ancestors - missionaries left
off this same chapel towards the evangelization
of China and other countries.
now our turn.
The presider emphasized the positive role of the Claretians in the diocese of Macao who in a short time have made their presence felt.
