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.

Since the signing of the Vatican-China Temporary Agreement in October, 2018, the government in China has passed new and very strict new religious policy, and destroyed most prayer rooms. These new conditions made the life in the underground church even more difficult and unpredictable. Therefore, while we can still accept Mass requests, we CANNOT ACCEPTING 30- Gregorian Mass or the 9-day Novena Masses as we cannot guarantee that these Masses will not be interrupted by the government. Please pray for the protection of the underground church and pray that the Holy Spirit will guide Pope Francis in his decision.
