Cidade do Nome de Deus video series, which premiered on July 7, seeks to make the world aware of Macao’s unique Catholic World Heritage. The first episode featured the Ruins of St. Paul.
The auditorium of the new Diocesan Centre at Rua Formosa hosted last month a talk about death, bereavement and grief. The event was promoted by the Diocesan Commission for Life, and it featured K C Leung – a well-renowned family therapist and marriage counsellor from neighbouring Hong Kong – as the guest speaker.
Not every religious vocation follows the same route. Some take longer than others to answer the call. Some are more prepared than others. The beauty of God’s love is that He is always there to meet us and guide us patiently and gently toward His mission for us.
Celebrating 75 years of O Clarim mandates the celebration of those that have built up the publication and made it what it is today. José Miguel Encarnação, editor of the Portuguese edition, is one such person who has transformed O Clarim into an engaging, relevant platform, carrying forth the mission of the Church.
O Clarim is going from strength to strength in its mission thanks to a dedicated team that toil wholeheartedly, epitomizing Christian virtue through their work.
The mission is burdensome and requires everyone’s commitment. The Catholic Diocese of Macau launched late last month the Diocesan Year of Vocations with the aim of creating a favourable environment for the awakening of priestly and religious vocations. To encourage the involvement of young people in the life of the Church – Brazilian missionaries Daniel Oliveira and Rafael Vigolo claim – is essential to attract new labourers to the vineyard of the Lord.
Marian devotion sets the tone for the “Litaniae Lauretanea” art exhibition that was inaugurated last Saturday at Rua Formosa. The exhibition is one of the initiatives that the Macau Catholic Culture Association will promote until the end of the month as part of the celebrations of May, the Month of Mary.
A new poetry contest aimed at children that attend the Portuguese-language Sunday school classes at the Cathedral of the Nativity of Our Lady was launched last month. The initiative, mainly aimed at new methods of meditating on God’s Word, attracted more than two dozen participants.
The Vietnamese Catholic Community has come a long way serving God and brethren. May 1, 2023, celebrating the patronal feast at the Fatima parish, was a fitting occasion to thank God for His blessings for the last 15 years.
The trilingual O Clarim has become a true beacon of synodality, using every platform possible and multiple languages to engage and evangelize in the modern world.
