TAWAU – In conjunction with Bible Sunday, Holy Trinity Parish Tawau held a parish-level biblical event called “A Pilgrimage to the Holy Land.“
More than 400 parishioners participated in this half-day momentous event which was jointly organized by the Parish Bible Apostolate in collaboration with other ministries. It was conducted at the Parish Hall compound beginning from 8.30 am to 12.00 noon.
The journey began with a presentation of slide show on Holy Land in three languages, each at different time. After viewing the slides, each participant would get their passport chopped at the various stations. Groups were then assigned to these stations to recreate the setting of holy places most frequented by pilgrims as in Jerusalem. Participants would be awarded a certificate upon completion of the journey.
The objectives of the event were to give the participants, especially those who are unable to make their dream to Holy Land, the inspiration, understanding, and unique experience. It provides a good opportunity for everyone to reflect on the Word of God especially those related to Holy Places in the history of our salvation. It also strengthened their faith with a hope that through such experience one may know more the root of the Catholic faith and our salvation. – TAWAU SOCCOM, Julita
