Sharing: 2017 CSD Staff Training Institute Open Day

I attended the Open Day of Correctional Services Department Staff Training Institute on March 18, 2017. 
The Staff Training Institute is responsible for planning and implementing training programmes to equip staff with relevant knowledge to fulfill the Vision, Mission and Values of the Department.  Newly-recruited Officers and Assistant Officers have to undergo 26-week and 23-week basic training respectively including field placement at correctional institutions. Development training courses such as refresher courses, specialist training courses and command courses are regularly conducted at the institute to foster staff’s personal effectiveness and help their career development. Scenario training and situational analysis are emphasised in staff training.  To promote self-enhancement and life-long learning culture, CSD provides a wide variety of self-learning resources. A Knowledge Management System (KMS) has been established to strengthen e-learning since 2010. (http://www.csd.gov.hk/english/about/abt.shtml)
There was an opening ceremony, video about the training, virtual experience, game booth, news about NGO activities, equipment training display, vocational training display, information regarding changing name from Prison to Institution 35th Anniversary, Dramatic way in touring the museum, New and old uniform display and action show including marching band.

Sharing: 2017 Lenten Reflection Indonesian Catholic Community in Hong Kong

The Indonesian Chaplain Fr. Heribertus, SVD asked me to lead Lenten reflection for the Indonesian Catholic Community on Feb 26, 2017 at St. Paul Convent School Hall Hong Kong. There were more than 60 women attended it.
The music team led a short praise and worship before the reflection.  I gave a short introduction about the tradition of washing of the feet.  We watched the video of Pope Francis washed the feet in a prison in Rome on Holy Thursday 2015 while listened to the reading from John 13: 1-15.
Several volunteers helped to prepare the washing of feet ceremony.  There were four stations of washing of feet.  I washed the feet and prayed for the first person in each station and then she washed the feet and prayed for the second person, etc.  
It was the first experience and very moving ceremony for many of them.  After tea break, I asked them to share their experiences in small group of four and then I
invited several of them to share to big group.

March 3, 2017:

          I led a reflection for the Indonesian Catholic Mothers Prayer Group on March 2, 2017 at the Catholic Centre, Hong Kong and arranged a washing of feet and praying ceremony.  There were seven mothers attended it besides Sr. Rita, RGS.   It was a very moving ceremony.    I asked everyone to share their reflection before the closing prayer.
