and it was also wonderful to welcome visitors Bishop Roger Chung Jaomalaza (formerly Bishop of Antsiranana, Madagascar) and his Taiwanese wife and very handsome son, who looks not unlike Michael Jackson……. very lovely family whose home is Mauritius, visiting Taiwan to see her parents in Pingtung. Lots of mutual friends and things to talk about, it was fun!
Friday was Epiphany and off we all went to Kaohsiung for big ordination service, a wonderful start to the New Year for the Taiwan Episcopal Church: 2 new priests! Kaohsiung was warm and very pleasant, and those of us who had come from the frozen north were easily distinguished as we were all carrying bundles of heavy coats ~ ah winter in south Taiwan is so pleasant!
St Timothy’s Church kindly hosted us all…….
Here is Bishop Roger and one of our clergy, Rev. Sam Cheng. For more of Bishop Roger’s photos see his blog: http://mgrrogerchungjaomalaza.blogspot.com/
And here follows the ordination service of Rev. Philip Ho and Rev. Simon Tsou…… congratulations to both!
