Birthdays in September

Sr. Nancy (3rd from right) turns 82. Sr. Nancy was in-charge of the Catholic Community in Mui Wo at a time when there were no priests assigned to the place in the 1980s. 
Fr. Tom Peyton, a Maryknoll priest (in the middle) celebrated his 85th birthday. After many decades of dedicated service to the Church in Hong Kong and in Mainland China, Fr. Tom is returning to his homeland in November. Thank you Fr. Tom for the witness of life. He is seen with a group of Claretian Friends. 
Frs. Mario, Jose, Jojo and Jijo with Fr. Tom Peyton, during his birthday celebration. Claretians in Hong Kong are greatly indebted to this great soul as he was a mentor to the missionaries during their years of language study. And he was a great supporter of our Publishing Ministry. 
Here is a video of an interview with Fr. Tom. It's a bit long, but will provide great insight into the life and mission of this great missionary:
