Dear Xaverians,

Following our transport strategy which designates railways as the backbone in Hong Kong, the metro network has been growing organically, attempting to reach every populated corner in the territory. Several extension networks are now being built in full swing. Each presents itself as a complicated yet interesting story involving engineering, geography and humanity, especially for the recently opened West Island Line which routes underground through some of the most historical districts.

Daniel Li (K76) is going to share with us some tidbits and anecdotes about the West Island Line project as an insider. You're welcome to bring some more stories or simply to enjoy some fun facts behind the scene.

Please note that this month's happy hours will be held on the 4th Thursday instead of the usual third one, because of venue arrangement.

Date: 23 Apr 2015 (Thu)
Time: 6:30pm to any time you like
Venue: China Coast Bar, 3/F, Mariners' Club, 11 Middle Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (Tel: 23688261)
Theme: Tidbits and Anecdotes of MTR West Island Line 趣談港鐵港島線西延
Speaker: Daniel Li
Buy your own drink. About HK$20 per drink

Happy Hours Gathering is a regular casual occasion held on the third Thursday of each month. It lets old boys from SFX Kowloon and Tsuen Wan have a drink after a day's work and enjoy chatting with old buddies or any new friends, about our theme or anything beyond. There's no need to register. Just come!

Many old boys joined this event in the past as their first re-appearance to connect with our Alma Maters. Don't feel shy if you're new to alumni activities, because we all carry one thing in common: the heritage of SFX!

Best Regards and See you,

“Ode to Marist Brothers”

Spurred on by Bro. Gregory’s dedication, sacrifice and hardship in the Marist Mission in Kenya,
How can we not be inspired to continue our support
For SFXBOYS Scholarships for the Marist School students?

Over the years we, as a group, have contributed US $100,000 to help the students –
Individually, one cannot do too much, but as a worldwide SFX brotherhood,
We can draw on everyone’s compassion and efforts to move mountains!

Our abiding beloved octogenarian Bro. Gregory,
One among many Marist Brothers -- past, present and future –
Has been ordained and persevering for 60 years (since 1954)!
He educated us in Hong Kong for decades, and is now in Kenya,
Administering three schools, nurturing the young, and helping the poor.

The Mission depends on donations and young volunteers …
Let’s send Bro. Gregory a surprise anniversary gift this year by donating even more !!
How about everyone donating something, per ability, just to show we all appreciate?
It would also be rewarding to reach out, encouraging all our schoolmates to participate.

Recent news out of Africa shows Bro. Gregory is trying desperately
To get the proper medical treatment for an 11-year-old boy
With a baseball-sized cancer on his neck ( view Worldwide Campaign).

Here lies a great challenge for all of us:
Can we let our consciousness venture beyond our comfort sphere of I - Me - My - Mine,
To soar to the ether riding on the world-revolving caring altruistic winds;
To make our act of giving to the Marist Mission
As dependable and predictable as the trade winds,
As welcoming as the return of the swallows to Capistrano, and
As relieving as spring rains that renew life?

Thank God for the Marist Brothers - - - Act now!

Bosco Ho (K-66)
Webmaster (based in San Francisco),

Dear Brothers and Old Boys,

I like to give you a brief update as I you have missed some news from me for some time.  The reason is that I was on my home visit to Germany. I made it back to Kenya and to the island of Mfangano just one week ago.  There are a few reasons for my two months stay in Germany. 
1. All the German Marist Brothers who are out in the foreign missions were invited back to Germany for a General Assembly of all German Brothers in the world. At one time, especially during WW II, there were a total of more than one hundred German Brothers in the Mission countries, especially in China, Samoa Islands, South America, Africa.  Today that number has dwindled to  less than ten. The main reason is that few, and in some countries hardly any young people for some decades heed the call to religious life. On the other hand, the fact that numerous young volunteers are coming forward to help our Marist missions for a period of one or more years. 
2. The German Brothers also celebrated their Centenary of Marist missionary work in Germany. One hundred years of service and life history  of a person-- and more so of a community-- is to be celebrated so as to give thanks and praise to God for his goodness.
3.This third reason was for the celebrate of the diamond jubilee of some Marist Brothers.  In 1954 there were fifteen of us who made their PROFESSION, that is, their commitment as Marist Brothers of the Schools (FMS). Out of the fifteen of us, God has already called nine to their eternal home.  These nine persevered in their vocation and died as Marist Brothers. Among these nine is also Brother Rudolf Urban who died two years ago in Hong Kong and is buried in Cheung Sha Wan cemetery with other Marist Brothers. 
In the attached photo four of us are pictured in the front bench at the Eucharistic jubilee celebration in the Marist Brothers` Church in Germany (Nr.1406).
Also in my native village in Bavaria, Germany, my home parish celebrated the occasion in a very lively and happy fashion according to our customs with "Un Papabrass band" for the procession to the Church and refreshments "à la Bavaria"!
I am very happy and grateful to God that HE grants me the health to still be of service to the marginalized youths in this remote area or as visitors often refer to it as a "hardship area". I am deeply grateful to all our loyal and generous Old Boys and all our benefactors for your support.  You make it possible to continue keeping some of our neediest students in our Marist schools, more especially in ST. Martin Technical school, Ramba, and Bishop Mugendi Secondary School. Truly, we are ONE WORLDWIDE MARIST FAMILY !
Ever united in our common mission, in love, prayer and brother hood,
Your Brother Gregory in Kenya, East Africa
