The Catholic Church in China

The Catholic Church in China
presented by Sean Donovan

The Holy Father issued, in late May 2007, his letter to Chinese Catholics calling for unity between the 'underground' and 'state sanctioned' members of the Church.

Sean Donovan has recently returned from two months study in Chinese International Relations at Fudan University in Shanghai where he wrote two papers on China's position in the globalised group of nations. As part of this work he completed a case study looking at the current situation of the Catholic Church in China. He also experienced the Catholic Church life in Shanghai and Beijing.

You are invited to come to a presentation and discussion of the history and status of the Catholic Church in China. Sean will discuss the  operation of the communist system in controlling Church activities and the ongoing persecution of Church members.

Where: St John's Hall Meeting Room
When: Sunday, 2nd September
Time: 6:30pm
