Our community has more than twenty years of history in Dallas. What began as five or six families coming together to study the Bible and pray together, quickly became a community that regularly gathered at nearby churches for Masses and meetings. As the numbers grew, they requested that the Diocese of Dallas help establish a permanent Chinese Catholic community in 1990. In 1992, we put our money together and purchased a small office building in Richardson, Texas. By the end of 1993, we had renovated it to become our sanctuary and activity hall. With the guidance of priests seconded from Taiwan and the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, our small community grew stronger in numbers and in faith.

What Is A Mother?




A mother is a very special person.She must have the ability to handle many situations and do assume many roles.She must be loving, giving, self-sacrificing, gentle, compassionate, understanding, patient, kind, accepting, and forgiving.Perhaps, the greatest characteristic of a mother is her ability to give selflessly without expecting anything in return; giving even with the realization that there may be no “thank you” and no appreciation.

A mother must be able to give guidance, direction and discipline to her children when needed, read the subtle gestures and expressions her children convey and hear their unspoken words. She must be realistically accept her children for what they are and love them in spite of their shortcomings, and in spite of the sorrow they may cause her.In short, a mother must be able to forgive and forget.

When her children are grown, a mother must let them lead their own lives and muct respect their opinions and life styles.Most of all, a mother must have the ability to share in the joys, laughter, and dreams of her children and reap the benefits that being a mother can bring.
