Hong Kong Diocese has asked Catholic schools to create awareness about the new national security law in a move that some say challenges the future of Catholic education in the Special Administrative Region of China.The diocesan office for education last week sent a letter to all Catholic schools and its only college asking them to "promote proper recognition" of the security law and the Chinese national anthem. The directions issued on Aug. 4 were a sign of church leaders succumbing to political pressure from the communist regime, according to the Catholics Concerned about the Hong Kong National Security Law Group.
