St John’s Cathedral holds Blessing Hong Kong service

Publish Date: 18-Jul-2019

St John’s Cathedral held a Blessing Hong Kong service with the theme “From brokenness to hope” on 30 June. Archbishop Paul Kwong of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui was the celebrant of the service and Bishop Timothy Kwok of Eastern Kowloon was the preacher. After the sermon, the two bishops, together with Bishop Andrew Chan of Western Kowloon, knelt before the cross and led the congregation in praying to the Lord: “to come among them and heal the brokenness”. Still on their knees, the bishops also led the congregation in repenting for “having seen the injustices done to others but have been slow to go to their aid”; “turning a blind eye to evil and dishonesty in our society”, “having heard the good news of Christ, and have kept it for ourselves”, and for “failing to live out the teaching of the gospel”.

Over three hundred people attended the service including representatives from the six religions. Other guests include Esther Blythe, Deputy Head of Mission, British Consulate-General Hong Kong; Kurt Tong, Consul General of the United States of America to Hong Kong and Macau; and Joshua Law, Secretary for the Civil Service.
