Huangshan, China. The Claretian Missionaries were established in China in 1927 in the beautiful city of Huangshan at the side of the famous Yellow Mountains, one of the wonders of the world.

There a small Christian community began to grow. All the missionaries had to leave in 1950, but the seed of faith continued growing. Today there now exists a group of Christians linked to that heritage.

The new church will be completed at the end of 2012.
