KOTA KINABALU – Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish here has a low-keyed celebration of its 34th dedication anniversary on 22 Nov 2015, the Solemnity of Christ the King.
Parish priest Abp John Wong presided at the BM Mass, concelebrated with Fr Willfred Atin, one of four assistant priests of the cathedral, assisted by Deacon Joshua Liew at the altar.
In his homily, the prelate dwelt on the readings of the day, elaborating on the kingship of Jesus. He also touched on the meaning of the dedication anniversary.
In his address at the fellowship at the parish centre after Mass, Abp Wong told those present that the dedication anniversary is an occasion whereby the leaders of the seventy plus groups/ministries in the parish can get to know each other so that they can work together for the good of the parish.
In his turn, Parish Pastoral Council Chairman Jason Joenoi briefed those present about the recent PAX Assembly and the need to integrate the outcome into the parish planning.
