.- The Salesian Fathers are celebrating this year a century of ministry in China, marking the centenary with a variety of activities in Hong Kong and Macao.  The Vicar General of the Salesian society, Father Adriano Bregolin, has traveled to China to attend many of the celebrations.

The Fides news agency reported that after a special Mass celebrated by the Bishop of Hong Kong, Cardinal Joseph Zen, Father Bregolin shared with members of the Salesian order in that city “the meaning and grace that comes with being part of the family of Don Bosco.”

Among the activities marking the anniversary was a celebration entitled, “The Dream Continues,” which took place at Ocean Park in Hong Kong and reminded Salesians of the great responsibility of keeping alive the dream of St. John Bosco for China.

In Macao, Salesians celebrated the 100 year anniversary by inviting Father Paul Leung Kon-Chiu to work with Chinese immigrants in Canada, Australia, and the United States.
