OFWs in Hong Kong continue to go to church despite protests – CBCP

The protest actions in Hong Kong have not deterred overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from going to church and attending mass, according to the head of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines Episcopal Commission on Migrants and Itinerant People.

The CBCP official was recently updated by Father Jay Flanders, one of the priests in Hong Kong, regarding the situation of OFWs there.

“I was also informed that their employers are so concern with the welfare and safety of their household service workers that they are limiting their free time except going to Holy Masses,” added Santos.

Santos in turn reiterated their advice to OFWs to follow the instructions of the Department of Foreign Affairs consulate there.
