For the months of July and August 2017 the Mission Office was blessed to have two guests on the Mission Matters LIVE! radio show who are familiar with mission efforts in China and Hong Kong. You can find recordings of the radio shows here.
– In July Megan interviewed Mrs. Mary Sluka, member of the Board of Directors for the U.S. Catholic China Bureau, catechist and local parishioner of Ascension Parish in Oak Park.
– In August Megan interviewed Fr. John Cuff, MM, a Maryknoll priest ministering in the Hong Kong/China region for most of his 40+ year career. You can find a general reflection written by Fr. Cuff from 2014 here.
