The HKSKH Archives Field Trip
The HKSKH archives
arranged a field trip for our interns and staff on June 24. The interns had an opportunity
to explore the history of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui.
Interns and staff of HKSKH archives joined “The Kowloon City Themed
Walking Trail”. It was organized by the Information Centre of the Development
of the Kowloon City Themed Walking Trail which is related to the HKSKH Welfare
Council. We visited the Cattle Depot Artist Village as well as the old
buildings along “13 streets” in To Kwa Wan.
We also visited the Holy Trinity Cathedral and had a pleasant
conversation with The Rt Revd Dr Timothy Chi-pei Kwok, Bishop of the HKSKH
Diocese of Eastern Kowloon, The Very Revd Chan Kwok-keung, Dean of Holy Trinity
Cathedral Priest-in-Charge and The Revd Dr Richard Tsang Wing Cheong, Chaplain
of Holy Trinity Cathedral. We are grateful for the introduction of Revd Chan
Kwok-keung. Interns got a better understanding about the architectural features
and history of the HKSKH Holy Trinity Cathedral.
In the afternoon, we visited the “Kwong Yat Sau Rock” and “Anglican
Church Alms House” which are in Kowloon Walled City Park. By seeing these heritage sites, we all got a
chance to recognize the contributions of the Rev. Kwong Yat Sau to missionary work
for Chinese, especially among the
poor in Kowloon city.
