Our friend Fr. Hung Yu Tao (center) shares with us these photos of the new seminarians in the mainland China. This seminary is an extremely poor old building. Fr. Huang tells that can not receive more candidates because they literally have no more place!
|Father Huang with the new seminarians ... on the life of St. Anthony Mary Claret! The seminarians receive a copy of the life of Claret published by us in Chinese.|
P. Huang writes:
"We started the new school year in late August. This semester we selected 24 new seminarians of the 38 candidates who applied. Thank God. Twelve of our graduates joined several major seminaries. On 23 August we celebrated the ordination of three new priests and 11 deacons in the diocese. We now have a total of 47 seminarians. Have we had more rooms, we could have accepted more candidates. "
With more vocations to priesthood, the future of faith in China is in good hands!
