The worldview of brotherhood

Priest Zhan came to Taiwan in 1966 and devoted his entire life to preaching and taking care of disadvantaged people for 55 years. I admire his dedicated spirit! Priest Zhan was touched by other priests' vocation of service and influenced more people with his actions, from a Chinese rookie to speaking Chinese with no foreign accent, from setting up public health and philosophy courses in Fu Jen University to building St. Joseph's Province Infirmary! Priest Zhan's missionary spirit, which focuses on the vision and goal of building a positive, united people environment, is a rule model for employment in enterprise and society.

Priest Zhan’s story has the following inspirations:
