Serving with Bishop Michael Yeung – Sharing from my heart

I knew Bishop Yeung for many years. The bishop and I joined Caritas-Hong Kong in the same year: he as Director of Education Services while I started as a lecturer at the then-Caritas Francis Hsu College (CFHC), now the Caritas Institute of Higher Education (CIHE). My long history of working for the bishop began with my teaching in CFHC, where I had the honour of occasionally drafting his speeches and other documents in English, in particular, those related to the college.

A friend of the youth

Bishop Michael Yeung was truly a friend of the youth. It’s easy to assume that a person in his position and with his schedule would be distant and inaccessible. I never got that impression from him. 
 
I remember his warm affection for the youth. He had celebrated the Mass for our annual sports and games day, Holympics, a few times.

I offer my pains to glorify the Lord

I knew Bishop Michael Yeung Ming-cheung for more than 45 years. We spent our seminary days together at the Holy Spirit Seminary. He was very good in Chinese culture, history and literature. I have fond memories of him playing football where he was always the goalkeeper. When he joined the seminary, he was at least 10 years older than us and used to call me “little boy” and would joyfully spent his time with us.
