On Tuesday 10 June, St Vincent’s Branch of the Catholic Men’s Society (CMS) welcomed Fr Eamonn O’Brien to Sheffield. Fr Eamonn is a Columban Missionary working in China based in Beijing. After celebrating Mass, he gave an inspirational talk about his work and the work of the Columban missionaries in China. Fr Eamonn spoke about the positive developments taking place at the moment and the opening of a contemplative Convent, the first in China since 1949. Fr Eamonn urged the CMS to continue to pray for the Church in China and thanked the CMS for their continued financial support for his work.
