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

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.

Catholic scouts ready for a new year

After an exceptional year, the Lusophone Scouts Group of Macau is keen on attracting new blood, but the enrollment of new members is currently limited to the Explorers and the Pioneers. The Taipa Houses-Museum, near the Church of Our Lady of Carmel, was the chosen venue for the local Catholic scouts to re-launch their activities this Saturday morning.
