Parishioners taste the Flavours of Myanmar at St John’s Cathedral

Publish Date: 13-Oct-2018

St John’s Cathedral has been a partner with the Diocese of Toungoo in Myanmar since 2016. On 15 September, the cathedral organized an event called Flavours of Myanmar to give parishioners and citizens of Hong Kong an opportunity to experience the culture of this South Asian country and to support the partnership between St John’s and Toungoo.

The Very Revd Matthias Der, Dean of St John’s Cathedral, said that the partnership brought sweet fruits to both sides. They had been interceding on each other’s behalf; parishioners at St John’s had gone to Toungoo as volunteer teachers; the Revd Catherine Graham had also led parishioners for an exchange to Toungoo earlier this year.

In a video message, Bishop John Wilme of the Diocese of Toungoo expressed his thanks to the participants of the Flavours of Myanmar event and the support St John’s had provided his diocese in the previous two years. He also thanked the preparatory committee of the event for their hard work and contributions.
