Details

In the past, there was a series of events at Hong Kong Sacred Spaces called “Spirituality Roundtable”. These Roundtables were an attempt to bring people together to discuss some of the themes we cover and amazing places that we would visit. Early examples included “Materialism in Hong Kong Culture”, “Buddhism and Christianity”, and “Daoism and the I-Ching”. It’s been a while since we’ve held a Roundtable. Luckily we’ve found some like-minded partners in the UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISTS HONG KONG 尋道會 (UUHK) to help us relaunch this project with lectures, seminars, and other programs. A case in point is the upcoming talk with Fr. Ambrose Mong.

Fr. Ambrose Mong, Ph.D., is assistant parish priest at St Andrew's Church, Hong Kong, part-time lecturer and research associate at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He has published more about 50 articles in peer review journals and has also written many books on the Catholic Church including “Are Non-Christians Saved? Joseph Ratzinger's Thought on Religious Pluralism”, “Acceptance and Accommodation: An Exploration in interfaith relations”, and “Guns and Gospel: Imperialism and Evangelism in China”. His talk will review his work so far with an emphasis on his published works. He’ll also cover some of the more interesting aspects of being a practicing Catholic priest AND academic here in Hong Kong.

Join us and start your week with stimulating conversation on an important topic.
