Hong Kong Trip 2–December, 2023

Day 3

Day 2 was spent mostly in the room where I am staying, catching up on some work. Then on Day 3, December 29th, I went to Macau to see the Catholic deaf people there.

When we arrived, Rebecca met us and got us to St. Joseph Church were some of the Catholic deaf community had gathered.
The parish has always been most gracious to the deaf group, and today they provided us with a wonderful lunch–a great time to be together.
From the church we drove to the Trappistine Monastery were ten Trappist Sisters minister. Sr. Emmanuela warmly welcomed us and showed us around.
The monastery sits on a hilltop and overlooks the four square miles that comprise the whole area of Macau.
Finally was it was time to go home and we took a jetfoil ferry for the one-hour trip to Hong Kong. We had wanted to experience the bus ride across the new bridge, but because of holiday period, the waiting time for a bus was too long. These ferries are powered by two aircraft jet engines.
