Annual Athletic Meet--Pray for Hong Kong 2019-10-03

Maryknoll Fathers’ School Annual Athletic Meet was held successfully at Sham Shui Po Sports Ground on 17th of September, 2019, despite adverse weather conditions. Ms Agnes Garman Yeh, the Supervisor of the school, was invited to officiate the Opening Ceremony. The Supervisor began her sharing to the students with the Olympic motto which is "Faster, Higher, Stronger". She mentioned that the social events that have happened recently are leading Hong Kong into unchartered waters that will be unpredictable, rough, repressive and divisive. She encouraged the students to be spiritually strong and more enduring, purposeful and discerning in dealing with many new challenges in their personal lives and in society at large. Instead of the traditional ‘marching in’ of the four houses, all staff and students used the ‘hand-heart’ gesture to pray for Hong Kong. We hoped this prayer expressing the love and care for Hong Kong would go straight to the Lord. In addition, we prayed with the utmost fervency for a virtuous and righteous Hong Kong, where peace and justice may prevail over violence, partisanship and tyranny.
