Sharing: 2016 Shenzhen Catholic Churches Choir Performance


Holy Family Church was the host of the third annual Shenzhen Catholic Churches Choir Performance on Nov 26, 2016.  

It was planned to be held on Oct 22, 2016 so I suggested give away bookmarks to the participants to be given away as part of World Mission Sunday activities.  Unfortunately, there would be typhoon on Oct 22 so it was postponed to Nov 26, 2016.
Several volunteers and I prepared a package of booklet about faith, bookmarks and holy card “Our Lady of Maryknoll” so we gave it away to our parishioners on Mission Sunday Oct 23, 2016 after the Mass.  One of the readers read part of Pope Francis’s letter for the 2016 World Mission Sunday and then showed pictures of our 2015 Mission Sunday activities.
There were twelve choirs including choir of Priests and Sisters at the end.  Several Churches had two choirs including our Holy Family Church.  Fr. Lu led the praise and worship after our Church choir performance.  All choirs received two gifts: one from our Church and one from CCPA Shenzhen.  Several parishioners asked me, why did I don’t join the choir of the Priests and Sisters.   Our Parish Council leader asked me to sit in the front pews (with the Sisters) but I decided to sit at the back with several volunteers.  We gave away the small package as we did during World Mission Sunday.  Thank God we moved to bigger place so we could accommodate all the participants.
