Guiney in Asia

guiney_01.jpgJohn Guiney SJ (centre in photo), just back from Asia, saw the impact of the Irish Jesuits in the East from Japan to Hong Kong, Cambodia and Signapore as expressed by people in terms of life-changing experiences. One successful and committed past pupil from Wah Yan College in Hong Kong told how his father, who was the cook of the Jesuit community for years, was able to send his children to the Jesuit college and it changed their entire lives. John asks how can the Irish Province in the future continue to honour the work of our missionaries abroad and the vital connections they have made to so many communities. He is working on a plea from the Provincial of China and Ashley Evans in Cambodia for volunteers to work with local Jesuits and missionaries in social work.
