Japan – Hong Kong students on pilgrimage to the Japanese island of Kyushu

07 November 2023

Kyushu, Japan – November 2023 – The pilgrimage that saw students, teachers and Dean of the Tang King Po School in Hong Kong travel to Fukuoka and Nagasaki, on the island of Kyushu, Japan, has just ended. These were intense days during which the group visited ten churches, including the Chapel of “Mary the Survivor”, which preserves relics that miraculously survived the atomic bombing, the natural site of Unzen Jigoku, the Museum and Monument of the 26 Martyrs and the Museum of the atomic bomb in Nagasaki. This pilgrimage was an opportunity to learn more about Japanese history and culture. It was an experience that helped to reflect on the sacrifices made by early Christian missionaries and recalled the importance of cherishing the faith even in the face of adversity. By coming into contact with a different culture, it enriched the understanding of the Christian faith in a different cultural context.
