Charity lunch for the needy on Christmas

On December 25, 2023, a Christmas lunch was hosted for the Taikoktsui community in collaboration with the Community of Sant'Egidio on our school's campus. Over 100 including seniors, and homeless neighbors attended the lunch.

The lunch was co-organized with a big team of volunteers from the alumni, students and parents of our school, and also helpers from the Community of Sant'Egidio, the Focolare Movement,  students from St.Paul's School (Lam Tin) College and Chong Gene Hang College. The volunteers served the attendees a delicious meal and prepared different kinds of performance and gifts for them.

The bishop of Hong Kong, Cardinal Stephen Chow Sau-Yan, joined us as the guest of honor at the event. He spoke about the importance of spreading love and compassion during the Christmas season. He also encouraged all volunteers to reach out to those in need and build relationships with them.

Our school has started to serve the community in collaboration with the Community of Sant'Egidio around half a year ago. This Christmas was a reminder that the true meaning of Christmas, which is about love, compassion and community. It also gave us an opportunity to bring the joy of Christmas to our neighbors in need.
