Hong Kong, 9 November 2022 -- Two weeks after the solemn canonization in Rome, the Salesian Family in Hong Kong with their young people gathered to give thank for the gift of Saint Artemide Zatti, Salesian Brother to the Universal Church and to the Salesian Family. The whole 3 hours long celebrations at HK, Kowloon based Mary Help of Christian parish was attended by some 300 members of all 8 Salesian Family groups present in Hong Kong.
First part was a good opportunity for all participants to get know our new Saint, an adopted son of Patagonia through the Argentina made short movie and through short presentation talk by Fr Lanfranco Fedrigotti,SDB. The social communication sector made a good effort to produce a good set of printed and digital materials on Saint Artemide Zatti.
The second part was the Eucharistic celebration, presided by Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-Kiun, SDB - bishop emeritus of Hong Kong with a homily by the China provincial superior, Fr Joseph Ng, SDB. The presence of young people (SYM members and animators) gave a special flavour to the whole celebration.
At the end of the celebration also the numerous Salesian Brothers made a photo session with their superior and cardinal Zen. Hence we are invited to pray for new Salesian consecrated vocations, Brothers and Priests!
Saint Artemide Zatti, pray for us!
