On the State of the Church in China

Please join the Penn Catholic Newman Community and the Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture for this most rare opportunity to converse with Joseph Cardinal Zen, Bishop Emeritus of Hong Kong. 

Cardinal Zen has been a heroic witness for the suffering yet growing Church in China for the last four decades and was notoriously labeled a member of the Hong Kong “Gang of Four” by Mainland Chinese state media.  

On Tuesday, October 18th, he visits Philadelphia to discuss the state of religious freedom in China, the persecution of Catholics and other Christians, and his own struggle to achieve liberty and democracy for his people. 


WHEN: Tuesday, February 18

TIME: 6:00 – 7:00 PM

WHERE: Penn Newman Center
