This book adopts the perspective of historical anthropology in studying the development of Hong Kong Catholicism in Sai Kung, since the establishment of the Apostolic Prefecture in 1841. In exploring the foundation of the Diocese in the local Chinese rural society, this book discourses how Christianity was disseminated amid the community embedded in traditional beliefs, the relationship between evangelism with Chinese traditional culture, customs and society, and the role of Catholic missionaries as a medium of Eastern and Western cultural exchanges from the early colonial period until the territory’s reunification with Mainland China.

The book is divided into seven historical phrases according to the evolutionary development of Catholicism in Sai Kung District. First it gives a brief account of the history and population of Sai Kung as the context to which Catholicism was first introduced to the area. Then the early days of Hong Kong’s foundation as a treaty port, the inception period of Catholic Mission in Sai Kung Peninsula, and the early to later stage of the Apostolic Vicariate are revisited. This publication also reviews the martyred missionaries, the hardships faced by the clergymen during the Japanese occupation, as well as the rebuilding and revitalisation of the church in the post-war period. 

When sorting out and researching the missionary history of Catholicism in the countryside of Sai Kung, the Working Committee of “Following Thy Way” not only retrieved the historical records of more than a hundred years in the Diocesan and government archives, but the research team also visited more than 20 villages scattered on the Sai Kung Peninsula by foot and boats so that the historic footprints of the past missionaries are strolled. To enhance the readers’ interest and easy association with the historical events, the book is supplemented by more than 100 rare photos accompanied with the chronology of major events around each chapel, which have seldom been presented to the public before.
