Our Saint of the Week

September 20—ANDREW KIM TAEGON, PAUL CHONG HASANG, AND COMPANIONS. Andrew Kim was born in Seoul, Korea, and despite his father’s martyrdom, Andrew converted to Christianity and went on to be ordained a priest.  In 1846 Andrew was brutally tortured and martyred along with his colleague Paul Chong Hasang, a seminarian. Between 1839 and 1867, 113 Korean Christians were martyred for the faith.  The Church in Asia continues to grow vigorously, and its vibrancy is a testament to the witness of martyrs such as these. The Korean Parish in Fife is named afer St. Paul Chong Hasang.
