New Catechetical Year: Macau’s Sunday Schools set to prepare children for a journey through God’s plan

In Macau’s largest parishes, catechesis classes will mobilize more than 100 children, O Clarim was told by the Diocesan Commission for Catechetical Formation.

In the smaller Portuguese-speaking community, about 130 children – distributed by the Cathedral parish and by Our Lady of Carmel parish – will attend catechesis this year.

Catholic Diocese of Macau publishes book on St. Roch, patron of invalids

Born to a rich family in southern France, Roch of Montpellier devoted himself to the care of the sick and the Catholic Church immortalized him with the status of protector against infectious diseases, patron saint of the invalids, surgeons and falsely accused people and defender of dogs. In Macau and around the world, devotion to Saint Roch was restored due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To thank the charitable saint for the protection he has extended over the city, the Catholic Diocese of Macau has recently released a book on his life and journey of faith.
