Ft. Lauderdale, Fl 2016

The Chinese Catholic community of the Archdiocese of Miami celebrated its twentieth anniversary on August 14th with a special mass concelebrated by Most Rev. Ignatius Wang retired auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, Msgr. Joseph Chiang, one of the founders of the community and Fr. Paul P. Pang, retired Director of the Overseas Chinese Apostolate. Following Mass, a wonderful lunch and a time for fellowship was enjoyed by over one hundred people in attendance. It was a time to reflect on the many years of prayer and hard work that brought the community to this day of celebration. While in Ft. Lauderdale, we were blessed to have stayed with Bernadette Chik, Chairman of the parish council, and her husband Franciscus. Their generous spirit and deep faith are what we will remember most from our stay. We pray that their community continues to grow and bear witness in the love of Christ.
