Oblate Youth Hong Kong – Friday Apostolate
“Serving the Different Faces of the Poor”
-Fr. Mark Anthony Serna, OMI
(Oblate Youth Hong Kong In-charge)
The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI) has been working in the Diocese of Hong Kong for more than 50 years. One of the ministries we have is the Youth Ministry. In this ministry, we are so blessed to have a good number of young people who have the Oblate spirit of loving, especially the most abandoned.
So, we strive to seek out, befriend and help not only those who are materially poor, but also those who are poor in spirit, those who do not know the name of Jesus Christ, those abandoned poor with their many faces: the marginalized, victims of different abuses, unemployed, victims of addictions, the sick, and many others.
Every Friday @ 8pm
The Street Ministry (Food-Giving) in Tok Wa Wan started by Fr. Slawomir Kalisz, OMI 18 years ago with few young men. In the beginning, they only gave boxes of food to some poor families they visited on Fridays. After few years of regularly doing it, they discovered more and more abandoned poor and homeless in the area. As the number of the needy increases, the number of young people and volunteers also increases. At present, there are around one hundred poor people who queue every Friday for the food.
FOODGIVING AT YAU MA TEI
every 1st and 3rd Friday of the Month @ 6pm
Ten years ago, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate had discovered another place with the different faces of the poor. We thank Fr. John Wotherspoon, an Australian Oblate Missionary, who first reached out to these needy ones. We go to the place every 1st and 3rd Friday of the Month to make friends with them, evangelize and give them a box of food which is only good enough for one meal. There are more than one hundred poor people who queue for food.
Street Ministry (Food-Giving) that takes place both in
Yau Ma Tei and Tok Wa Wan is the weekly apostolate of
our Oblate Youth Hong Kong. May
our Congregation be blessed with more young people who are
willing to respond to the needs of the poor, the homeless and
the most abandoned.
