“We are Catholics and we are expected to practice love”

September 9, 2021

On September 19th, the Church of Saint Joseph the Worker, in Hac Sa Wan, will host two lectures – one in Cantonese and the other one in English – about Laudato Si’ and its core message. It is the first of two initiatives on environmental protection promoted by the Diocese of Macau. A week later, on the 25th of September, the same Church will host an event on recycling, promoted by the “Macau for Waste Reduction” project. Both the initiatives are the brainchild of Benvinda dos Santos Keong, a member of the Social Concern Group of the Diocesan Commission for Life. The eco-activist spoke with O Clarim.

Cathedral Parish relaunches catechesis for preschool children

September 3, 2021

First in Taipa, then in Macau. The local Catholic communities are priming themselves for a new catechetical cycle. The new year begins a week apart in the two parishes. The Parish of Our Lady of Carmel, in Taipa, marks the beginning of the new catechetical year with the feast of the Holy Childhood. In the Cathedral of the Nativity of Our Lady, the new cycle will start a week later, with fewer catechists and something fresh: the rehabilitation of catechesis for preschool children.
