A dignified missionary presence lost

HONG KONG (SE): A quiet, but dignified missionary presence was lost to Hong Kong on February 5 with the death of Jesuit Father Ciaran Finbarr Kane. He was 80 years old.

Born in Durbin, Ireland, in 1932, he joined the Society of Jesus in 1950, graduating from the University College Dublin, now known as the National University of Ireland, before coming to Hong Kong in 1958.

Now my name is Ting

 

CANGZHOU (SE): The diocese of Xianxian (Cangzhou) in Hebei province, received a group of relatives of Father Ting Ming-Cheng, as the Jesuit missionary, Father Ghestin Anatole, is known to local people.

The French missionary devoted 53 years of his life to the mission in China, mostly in the Hebei area. Local people regarded the visit from his relatives as a great honour, as the priest’s memory is still very much alive.
