As Hin Shing said, Fr Naylor never taught us; he came to Hong Kong in 1960.
He came to our Golden Jubilee Reunion celebration dinner in Hong Kong in 2011. One photo Hin Shing

Dear Good Friends,
Sharing with you an extract of Father conducting mass today. His sermon is:

In many parts of the Bible children is mentioned.
Hope to teach our children to be loving, honest, humble people when they grow up …
I (and perhaps other friends in the room too) could feel the strong bondage with God as well as Father. After the mass, though tired, Father felt happy and kept on giving us his iconic, sweet polite little smile. Please pray for Father ❤❤🙏🙏

The power of prayer,
The blessing of God,
The character of Father Naylor,
