HONG KONG (SE): Bishop Michael Yeung Ming-cheung blessed the booths of the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong during a prayer service held on July 18 to mark the opening of the seven-day annual Hong Kong Book Fair at the Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre, Wanchai.
 
Blessing the diocesan booths and the participants present, Bishop Yeung said that the diocese takes part in the book fair because Christians have to put into practice the ministry of evangelisation, and it is to share the message of the gospel.
