Places of Workship

On Sundays, Filipino Domestic helpers normally visit the Roman Catholic Cathedral, Saint Joseph Church, along Garden Road across the Botanical and Zoological Garden. Another place of worship is the Catholic Center near the Worldwide House in Central. Then, they gather at Statue Square to spend their off-duty day with their friends.

There are other Catholic and Protestant churches all over the territory. Ada banyak gereja dan mesjid dapat anda temukan di Hong Kong. Anda dapat menanyakannya pada majikan atau teman. Dapat juga melihat buku petunjuk telepon.
