Father Pierre de la Bigne welcomes new catechumens into his parish of the Rosary in Taipei. He has sent us several accounts of conversions: a lady tourist who experienced transcendence during her visit to Notre-Dame cathedral, a former mafioso searching for redemption and a young girl who wanted to join a religious order.
On April 4, 2019, the first Taiwanese center for elderly handicapped people, called the I-Fong Yuan center, will be inaugurated in the presence of vice-president Philip Chen Chien-jen. Specializing in this type of care, it was created thanks to the initiative of Father Yves Moal, MEP, who has lived in Taiwan for over fifty years now.
Every Year, over 150 young people, between 20 and 30 years of age, knock on the door of the MEP Volunteer Service. They arrive with a sincere desire to give, and give of themselves.
For over a year now, our parish has started a volunteering service. Beyond the material issues, I was afraid that the mission would be insufficient and unexciting for a person in his twenties who dreams of conquering the world. It turned out to be quite the opposite.
For three months now, the new center, I-Fong Yuan has been situated on the opposite side of the former center for the handicapped, André Cuerq, at Yuli. Father Moal presents this project to us.
