China/Belgium: Scheutist Missionaries Celebrate Founder

A delegation from the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary-Missionhurst (CICM) wrapped up its June 2-8 pilgrimage to China last week aimed at cementing ties with Chinese bishops and dioceses in honor of the 150th anniversary of the passing of CICM founder Theofiel Verbist.

The group, led by Father Charles Phukuta, superior general of the CICM Missionaries, toured four CICM dioceses in northern China and delivered century-old religious relics to members of the local clergy as they also feted 35 years of cooperation between the Verbiest Foundation and the Chinese Bishops Conference.
