    American Passionist Priest Martyrs in China, 90th Anniversary 1929-2019: Remembering the Chinese Catholic Witness of Faith

    In the 1920s Passionist missionaries went to China to convert the Chinese. Throughout the twentieth century, missionaries and Chinese Catholics were witnesses to suffering and hope. What does the death of three Passionists in 1929 continue to teach us about sufferings and hope of contemporary Catholics in China? The event is in conjunction with the exhibit "Life, Death and Memory: Art and Artifacts from the Passionist China Collection."
