Catherine Lee - Taiwan

The Taiwan Episcopal Church is small but very active. My role is to encourage the mission of the Church as it tries to witness in a wealthy but diplomatically isolated nation. I also support the international liaison ministry of the Diocese of Taiwan as the only diocese in Asia that is an overseas member of the Episcopal Church in the US.

I first felt called to join Church Mission Society while serving as a primary school teacher in Heighington, County Durham. In 1990 I went with CMS to Tanzania, first to Isamilo Primary School, Mwanza, then to Canon Andrea Mwaka Primary School, Dodoma, spending between three and four years in each place. In 1999, CMS began expanding its ministry in Asia and as I was looking for a new challenge, I accepted the invitation to move to Taiwan.

For seven years I served in St James’ Episcopal Church, Taichung, teaching in the church kindergarten and in adult English classes. Since 2007, I have been at St John’s University, Taipei, based at the university chaplaincy but also involved with a wider ministry helping diocesan churches and kindergartens through English and Bible classes, and in their expanding ministry of English services.

Every day is different, the variety of ministry is huge and God is at work! God calls, we say “yes”, and so we set off for places unknown, cultures unfamiliar, challenges unimagined. CMS helps us to make that journey and fulfil our calling; its history, experience and expertise help us connect to the worldwide church and to be able to support local churches who love, pray and bless us to go in Christ’s name.
