Bishop John C. T. Chien’s Funeral

Yesterday was the funeral of our dearly beloved retired Bishop John C. T. Chien, in St. Peter’s Church, Chia-Yi, central Taiwan.  About 200 people gathered ~ family, clergy and most of our church members from southern and central Taiwan ~ in fact there were so many people that most were seated outside and watched on the big screen, a fitting tribute to how much Bishop Chien was admired and loved by so many….

A beautiful, moving service for such a wonderful person ~ and to be followed next Saturday by the Memorial Service in the cathedral in Taipei….

Please continue to pray for Bishop Chien’s wife Grace, all the family and all those who mourn his passing…
