The Mass for the Holy Family Feast Day at Holy Family Church Shenzhen was celebrated on December 31, 2016 2:30 p.m. We invited other the priests, sisters and parishioners from other Churches to attend the Mass. Fr. Zhang was the main celebrant, who just arrived from Beijing that morning and would leave the same day. There were 9 other priests and 12 sisters including me. The leader of CCPA Shenzhen is among the guests during the mass and dinner at the nearby restaurant.
Fr. Lu cancelled the renewal of marriage vows ceremony around one hour before the Mass as there was only one couple and he knew that they would be shy to do it alone.
The Sunday School students performed after the Mass. There were more than 500 people attending the Mass.
Several parishioners and I attended the Mother of God Feast Day at Mother of God Church, Yantian-Shenzhen after our Sunday Morning Mass. There were 4 priests, 4 sisters and around 300 people attending the Mass. Several sisters and I visited Hui Ling Shenzhen, just walking distance from the Church. There was a reception after the Mass at the restaurant nearby.
