Formerly a diocese, the Province of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui has been in place since October 25, 1998. The Most Revd Peter Kwong was installed as the first primate and the first Chinese Archbishop of the Anglican Church. Hong Kong and Macau have gone through political and sovereign changes in the past and Hong Kong has, since 1st July, 1997, rejoined while Macau will in the near future rejoin and become part of China, in the form of Special Administrative Regions.
Much of Archbishop Kwong’s education took place in the United States, where he graduated from Bexley Hall Divinity School. He is Advisor to the Amity Foundation of China, Vice-President of the Church Missionary Society, and a member of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC).
Despite the fact that Archbishop Kwong was the chairman of the Windsor Report “Reception Reference Group,” I have been unable to find quotations as to his personal views on the Windsor Report.
Our Father in heaven,
You are faithful. All Your promises are made “Yes” in Your Son Jesus Christ. We say “Amen” to Your glory.
Your Son anointed Peter, set His seal of ownership on him, and put His Spirit in his heart as a deposit. Help Peter attend to Your words and stand firm in Christ by faith. Guard his heart and keep Your words in his sight. Keep corrupt talk far from his lips. May Your Spirit overflow in thankfulness.
Say “Yes” to the building of the Kingdom of God in Hong Kong and Macau. Magnify the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit in this province and in China. Amen.
