To celebrate the coming of God’s kingdom, the service began with the famous carol—Once in a Royal David’s City, and was followed by nine lessons read by Revd Canon Eric and representatives of different service groups.

This is the first Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols of SAC – a huge thank you to all who have made great efforts to prepare this special worship!

Remembrance Sunday

On Sunday 14 November, our chapel held the Rites of Remembrance and Holy Eucharist service. It was a special day that people remembered the end of the First World War, on 11 November 1918. It has also become a day that we remember those in many countries around the world who had given their lives in their respective lines of duties. 

We particularly remembered the 51 DBS Old Boys who gave their lives in the Second World War. Their names were read at the beginning of the service, followed by a moment of silence.

Revd Franklin: “Only when humanity remembers that we belong to each other, that we are brothers and sisters, then we can have ultimate peace on earth.”

“They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.”

Preaching by Archbishop Andrew Chan and Commissioning of Choir members, Organist, Subdeacon, and Servers

Thank you Archbishop Andrew Chan for preaching to us on the feast day of the Blessed Virgin Mary, reminding us of Mary’s humility and her bravery in answering God’s call. Mary’s lowliness did not stop her from assuming great responsibilities.

Following the sermon, Archbishop Chan performed the rite of commissioning of our choir members, organist, subdeacon, and servers. May we follow Mary’s example to serve with humility.

29 August

Feast of St Augustine of Hippo,
8th Anniversary of St Augustine’s Chapel, and Confirmation

On this special day, we celebrated the feast of St Augustine of Hippo, and the reaffirmation of Christian faith of 15 brothers and sisters.

 

In his sermon, the Rt Revd Dr Timothy Kwok encouraged us to trust God as we face various battles in life: “Confirmation is not an end, but a beginning. God is inviting you to embark on a journey of life. Today, begin your journey, take full responsibility for your own life and your own choice.” As he concluded his sharing, Bishop Kwok reminded us to leave our burden in life with God, as “whatever you ask, God will do it for you”.

Congratulations to Carol, Rochelle, Alan, Cedric, Charlotte, Jennifer, Heather, Eric, King, Wing Sze, Kevin, Cherie, Anson, Mark, and Andy!

The Saints Series Pilgrimage -
St Augustine of Hippo

St Augustine’s Chapel was pleased to host the first of the Pilgrimage of the Saints Series “St Augustine of Hippo” in the morning of 28 August. This programme was well attended by pilgrims from different parishes of HKSKH and other churches in Hong Kong. The Series is organised by the HKSKH Ming Hua Theological College Alumni Association.

The Revd Lam Chun Wai began with the vision of the Series, which is to help us seek God’s calling through the testimony of Saint Augustine of Hippo, follow Christ and live our lives in God’s presence.

 

Our priest-in-charge, the Revd Franklin Lee, then welcomed the pilgrims and shared on the history of St Augustine’s Chapel.

 

It was followed by a savouring of Saint Augustine’s poetic “Confessions” by the Revd Vincent Chan (“Prayers on Finding God after a Long Search” and “Prayer of Trust in God’s Heavenly Promise”).

 

The pilgrims then had a meditation session and group sharing before the Revd Amos Poon led the noon prayer. The programme closed at 12:30pm.
