Publish Date: 14-Oct-2020

The consecration of the Rt Revd Matthias Der to the Holy Order of Bishop took place on 3 October at St John’s Cathedral. Due to the pandemic, the consecration service was not open to the public but was streamed online on three official websites of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui (HKSKH): the Province, the Diocese of Hong Kong Island, and the Echo. Only invited guests attended the service. In addition to the Most Revd Dr Paul Kwong, who was also presider and preacher at the service, the consecrating bishops included three incumbent and three retired bishops of the three dioceses of HKSKH.

In the sermon, Archbishop Kwong bade Bishop Der to spread the justice of God as a teacher and a missionary; play the role of the sentry who takes note of his surroundings so that he could connect God with the people; and be an instrument of God’s love.
