     “Pro-Life Day”

              The Church has always been firm in maintaining the dignity and value of life. In the eye of God everyone is precious, and life is a blessing and gift. The Hong Kong Catholic Diocese has announced that the 31st of May each year will be “Pro-Life Day”’, which serves to encourage the faithful to care about the gradual loss of respect for life in today's society, as shown by the increasing issues of abortion, artificial conception, euthanasia and suicide.

              In response to the Diocese, the Northeast NT Deanery hopes to bring out the message of respect for life and make it into a culture, so as to attract the attention of the parishioners and even the general public. As a result, this Sunday the seven parishes in the Deanery are distributing the “Pro-Life Badges” for parishioners and Catholic schools students to wear or hang on their handbags from May 26 to May 31, as a gesture to show their support for the idea of ​​respect for life.

     PROPER ATTIRE FOR CHURCH ATTENDANCE

     

    Chancery Notice 25 June 2009

     

    A church or chapel is a place set apart for divine worship and prayers. The faithful should therefore be properly and decently dressed while taking part in the liturgy or praying in these sacred places. A simplified Dress Code for church attendance, to be posted at the entrances to churches and chapels open to the faithful, has been laid down by Bishop John TONG after consultation with the Council of Priests and the Deaneries. The Bishop exhorts the faithful to abide by this Dress Code, in order that they may give due reverence to the sacred character of a church or chapel. The same Code applies to other visitors to these places.

     

    Rev. Lawrence LEE

    Chancellor 

     

    *** Let us enter the church with a solemn attitude ***

    **Decently and properly dressed is one way to show our respect to God**

     

    Please refrain from wearing clothes which are too short or too revealing. 

    Mini-skirts and short pants should also be avoided.
