Musical to Celebrate St Josef Freinademetz SVD, a Tirolese Saint

St. Freinademetz was born in 1852 in Badia (Tirol), then part of Austria but now in Italy, and was ordained in 1875. He was assigned to the community of San Martin de Tor, not far from his home.

During three years in San Martino, he always felt a calling to be a missionary, and in 1878, with the permission of his parents and his bishop, he moved to the Society of the Divine Word, where he received training as a missionary.

In 1879, he and friend Johann Baptist von Anzer boarded a ship to Hong Kong, where he arrived five weeks later.
