The Irish Jesuits in Hong Kong: 90 years on

Fr Alfred Deignan SJ
Fr Alfred Joseph Deignan SJ

When we reach the age of 90 we often look back at our life history and marvel at how God has blessed us. The first Irish Jesuits arrived in Hong Kong on the eve of the Feast of St Francis Xavier and said their first Mass the next day, 3rd December 1926, in the Cathedral. Was this God’s sign to us to be like St. Francis who had a strong desire to work in China?

When we reach the age of 90 we often look back at our life history and marvel at how God has blessed us. We feel so grateful, as we recognize God’s plan working through us as His poor weak instruments.

Given the political crisis and famine in South Sudan, Kakuma Refugee Camp continues to receive a massive influx of refugees from that country. The Irish Jesuit Missions continues to support projects in the camp. The provision of Buffalo bicycles is one such project. Michael O. Oyoo writes from Kakuma.

The ‘right time’

I arrived just over five months ago from Ireland and while it is a cliché, it really has been an amazing couple of months. Despite the many challenges in modern teaching, I have loved my job as a teacher from the day I started my first position as a Biology teacher in Cambridge. I love the students and the fact that every day is different. I had always intended to do some long term volunteering, at some stage, but initially I wasn’t sure what I could offer without very much experience so it was only an idea for a few years.
