Art expo on the travels of St. Paul opens in Hong Kong


“The missionary trips of St. Paul through the paintbrushes of young people” is the name of an art exhibit that will be on display through June 28, the end of the Pauline Year, at the Parish of the Miraculous Virgin in the Diocese of Hong Kong. Some 30 artists are participating in the exhibit with a total of 10 paintings on display.

According to Fides news agency, “the parish, motivated by the spread of the Pauline spirit, invited three local schools to participate in the initiative.”

The result is that more than 30 Catholic and non-Catholic students from Hong Kong Tang King Po College and St. Francis’ Canossian College participated in the creation of 10 paintings that portray the conversion of St. Paul and his three important missionary trips.

According to the director of the exhibit, “more than half of the students are not Christians, but they have come to know the Christian faith through their paintbrushes.”
