February 8th marks the new year in the Chinese lunar calendar, referred to as the Spring Festival in China, and marks the year of the Monkey.
In December 2015, Fr Anatoly Kung of the Hong Kong parish of SS Peter and Paul (Moscow Patriarchate) has joined as the first Chinese clergy to the OFASC Board of Trustees. The Hong Kong parish has electronically published over 20 catechetical titles in Chinese throughout the year 2015 with on demand in print publishing. In January 2016, OFASC entered into agreement with the United Bible Society to freely distribute a UBS proofread electronic edition of the 1910 New Testament and Psalter originally translated into early 20th century Chinese by the Russian Mission head Bishop Innokenty of Beijing at the time.
