Chinese New Year is an occasion to celebrate cultural diversity and the importance of family, community and renewal. The festival, marked by vibrant traditions, serves as an opportunity for us to appreciate and respect the rich heritage of the Chinese people.

Embracing the teachings of Christ, we recognise the significance of unity, love and understanding among different cultures. As we engage in the festivities, we reflect on the values of gratitude, generosity and reconciliation, seeking to build bridges of friendship and harmony with our Chinese brothers and sisters.

Chinese New Year becomes a moment of shared joy and mutual enrichment, emphasising the universal themes of hope, renewal and the pursuit of a more just and compassionate world.

You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. – Psalm 65:11
