KOTA KINABALU – Over 200 children received their first holy communion at Sacred Heart Cathedral here and Church of Mary Immaculate (CMI) Bukit Padang over the weekend of 29-30 Oct 2016.
At the cathedral parish, 115 children received Jesus Oct 29 while 43 received him at the 7 am Chinese Mass, and 85 at the 10:45 am BM Mass the next day. At CMI, 26 made their first holy communion Oct 30.
