On Sunday 30-12-12 (Holy Family Feast), the London Chinese Catholic Community was greatly honoured to have Bishop Alan Hopes, (the auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Westminster who is in charge of the ethnic chaplaincies) to celebrate Mass for us.  Among the concelebrants were Fr David Irwin, Fr Joseph Liang (our Chinese chaplain), Fr Tom O’Brien, Fr Ari Dy and Fr Justin.  More than 120 parishioners attended this Mass and the church was full.

In His homily, Bishop Alan preached that we should imitate and follow the example of the Holy Family’s loving, harmonious and trusting relationships in our own family life.

At the end of Mass, the children went on the altar and performed a song for the Bishop and then we received his blessings for the New Year.

After Mass, Bishop Alan and all the priests joined in our Christmas/New Year celebration dinner held in the Church Hall, followed by the raffle draw.  Everyone was happy, enjoyed the good food, the Bishop’s and each other’s company.
