Presentation and Discussion: the Legacy of Three Passionist Missionaries

On April 24, 1929, three young Passionists were murdered at the hands of bandits while serving as missionaries in Hunan, China. This event impacted U.S. Catholic history, shaped the Holy See's relations with China, and influenced the diplomatic policy of the U.S. Department of State in China during that era. We invite you to learn about these missionaries through a virtual presentation by Fr. Rob Carbonneau:

"95 Years Later:

Remembering the Life, Death, and Memory

of Three Young Passionists Killed in Hunan, China."

Father Robert E. Carbonneau, C.P., Ph.D., USCCA Director Emeritus

April 24, 2024

Online via Zoom at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time

You can learn more and attend the presentation via Zoom by navigating to the presentation's event page, hosted by the Passionists of Holy Cross Province. We hope you can join us in reflecting on the legacy of these three witnesses for the Catholic Church in China.
