Priests conduct a service at the Catholic Cathedral in Caine Road yesterday in honour of Cardinal Ignatius Kung Pinmei, who died on Sunday aged 98. Cardinal Kung spent 30 years in a mainland prison for his defiance of the official church. He succumbed to stomach cancer at his nephew's home in the United States.
