SED deeply saddened by death of Bishop Michael Yeung
     The Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, today (January 3) expressed his profound sadness at the passing of the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong, the Most Reverend Michael Yeung.

     Mr Yeung said that the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong is not only a religious body but also an important organisation providing social services in Hong Kong. On the education front, there are some 250 Catholic schools in Hong Kong. Having been led by Bishop Yeung, Catholic schools are determined to carry on the contribution of the Catholic church to education and pass on the core values of truth, justice, love, life and family to young people to prepare them properly for their life and future responsibilities. 

     "Over the years, Bishop Yeung has devoted himself to serving the disadvantaged and made significant contributions in building up a caring community. In his Christmas greetings last month, he also reminded us of being lovingly attentive to the needs of others, especially the most vulnerable."

     Mr Yeung said he believed that while Bishop Yeung's soul, through the mercy of God, will rest in peace, his spirit of service will continue to lead Catholics and others to take the Hong Kong community forward.
