Today we honor the ordination of Florence Li Tim- Oi, who was born in Hong Kong, in 1907. In 1944 Florence was ordained as an Anglican deaconess. Months later Hong Kong fell to the Japanese & WWII began. Florence was sent to Macau, where she served many refugees as the only ordained person. Bishop Ronald Hall ordained her to the priesthood in 1944, in order to help her fulfill her responsibilities.
