ANOTHER OBLATE SCHOOL IN HONG KONG
9/10/2011
ANOTHER OBLATE SCHOOL IN HONG KONG  
As of September 1, the delegation has four schools in the Oblate school network--Po Yan Oblate Primary School After faithfully serving in the school for 46 years, the Missionary sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, requested the Oblates of Mary Immaculate to assume the role of sponsoring body for Po Yan School. The sisters have dedicated many years toward creating an environment conducive to good education and formation in the Catholic Christian tradition.  The Oblates’ decision to accept the responsibility of the school, in spite of our limited personnel, is based on our concern to continue the sisters’ effort to make Catholic education available to the poor and minorities in the Kowloon city area of Hong Kong. Fr. William Meng, OMI, has generously agreed to be the new supervisor and is shown here with Sr. Rosa Smets, ICM, his predecessor of over 40 years.
