Nearly 100 priests, religious from mainland China study theology in Taiwan
December 06, 2012
Nearly 100 priests and religious from the People’s Republic of China are studying theology at an institute in Taiwan.
“Except for a handful who are priests in their 40s, the majority of the Religious men and women are in their 20s and 30s, and they are doing fine so far,” said Father Louis Gendron, SJ, president of the Fu Jen Faculty of Theology of St. Robert Bellarmine.
“It is a different channel from other mainland students whose applications are made through the education ministry, as the faculty is managed directly under the Vatican,” he added.
