    St. Paul's College Prayer Book, 1854

    This book of Collected Christian Prayers《耶穌聖教禱告文》was published by St. Paul's College in Hong Kong in 1854 for use at the school which was then located in Bishop's House. It contains orders for Morning and Evening Prayers in Chinese after the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, and is set out in woodblock printing by a press that may have been housed at the college. It is the earliest Chinese language Prayer Book in the HKSKH Archives.

    We are grateful to Dr. Keith Wong Ka Kei for this donation on this book on behalf of the St. Paul's College Alumni Choir.
