The story of Ignatius Cardinal Pin-Mei Kung is the story of a hero – a man who refused to renounce God and His church, through 30 years of solitary imprisonment; a man who inspired his countrymen to preserve the Roman Catholic faith under persecution in a communist country.In recent years, the Chinese government has given much freedom to its citizens in business & education but not in religion. The catholic churches in China belong to the Catholic Patriotic Association, an independent church founded by an atheist government and not recognized by the Holy See. Millions of Roman Catholics and clergy who refuse to register with the Patriotic Church must worship secretly at significant personal risk.Your donation will assist the underground church in providing advance training for clergy, nuns, seminaries, and the diocese apostolic projects.

F. Support a Nun Program: Sponsor the training and living expenses of 1 Novice, Postulant or a sister in China at $100 for a 6-mos. sponsor period. In appreciation of your support, that convent will remember in their daily community prayers your intention OR the intention of a named benefactor OR a deceased.
G. Mass Request: Each Mass will be offered by an underground clergy specifically for the intention you named below. It is a most precious gift for any occasions: birthday, illness, death or conversion. The stipends support the underground clergy and his pastoral activities. Since the signing of the Vatican-China Provisional Agreement in October, 2018, renewed in October 22, 2020, the government has intensified its persecution on the underground church, destroyed most prayer rooms and carried out frequent arrests and indoctrination of the underground bishops and clergy. We CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT 30-day Gregorian Masses or the 9-day Novena Masses as we cannot guarantee that these Masses will not be interrupted by arrests and interrogations. WE WILL BE PLEASED TO ACCEPT SINGLE MASSES.
H. Devotional Items:If you are a parish or an association and need to order larger quantity, please email email@example.com with your phone number, we will call you with the information.
