Headline: ASIA/SOUTH KOREA – From Korea on mission ad gentes: Korean priests sent to Asia and Latin America
Seoul – With the Solemn “Mass of the missionary mandate”, the Archdiocese of Seoul celebrated, in this month of October, traditionally dedicated to missionary work, the sending of six new Korean missionary priests called to mission in foreign countries. As Fides learns, Fr. Peter Tae-guen Kim will visit the Archdiocese of Osaka and Fr. Park Albert Min-woo the Diocese of Sapporo, Japan, while Fr. Park Paul Hyoung-moon will serve in the Diocese of Engativa, Colombia, and Fr. Marcellus Sang-hyun Han in the Archdiocese of Santiago, Guatemala. Fr. Michael Jung-hoon Shin, destined for the Archdiocese of Munich and Fressing, Germany, and Fr. Augustin Min-woo Ahn, missionary in the Archdiocese of Osaka, Japan, had already left in recent months, but because of the lockdown, they have only now received the “official mandate” from the Church.
