With a deeper reflection on the case of Fr. Haibo Wang and based on my personal experience and research, this essay aims to explore the urgent need of continuing formation of priests in China by looking into the historical background of the Church in China and inadequate seminary formation; giving some theological reflections; and then suggesting a pastoral plan.
