Hong Kong faithful rally for religious freedom in China
June 30, 2011
Catholics in Hong Kong rallied on June 29, under the leadership of Cardinal Joseph Zen, to call for religious freedom in mainland China and the release of the imprisoned bishops and priests of the "underground" Church.
The rally was held on the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, in line with the traditional celebration of unity with the Holy See. Chinese officials had chosen the same date for the illicit ordination of a new bishop, in defiance of the Vatican.
