HKSKH Archives Field Trip

Date: Friday 26 Jun 2020

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.
