Education Day 2012

Hong Kong (SE): On September 23, about 250 representatives from 12 schools and higher education institutes within the parish of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, joined the 11.00am Mass, concelebrated by vicar general, Father Dominic Chan Chi-ming and parish priest, Father Philip Chan Tak-hung, to mark Education Day.  

September 23 was the 10th anniversary of the death of John Baptist Cardinal Wu  Cheng-chung. Father Chan encouraged educators to learn from the late cardinal whom he said knew how to “sacrifice enjoyment and enjoy sacrifice.” He said education is a mission and in the face of difficulties and challenges, educators, parents and students should imitate the faithful and sacrificial love of the Good Shepherd.
