In view of the Chinese New Year, which was celebrated on January 31, the Catholic community of mainland China has intensifying the works of charity and evangelization, especially regarding the elderly, the sick, the poor, the needy and all the weaker sections of society. According to information gathered by Fides Agency, the faithful of the Group of Charity of various parishes in the Diocese of Ji Ning, Inner Mongolia, have become hairdressers, cooks, family doctors and cleaners during their visits to the Houses of Elders, without forgetting the gifts for the New Year. Guided by the priests, they are bringing Christian love to these lonely, elderly, sick people who are often forgotten by their relatives. The priests and the faithful volunteers also bring the sacraments to Catholics.
