Youth ministry organises blood donation drive as first activity for Lent

TANJUNG ARU – The new youth ministry organised a blood donation drive at the Stella Maris Parish Hall here on 12 Mar 2017 as its first Lenten activity since its formation in January.

The Service Team Ministry started this programme seven years ago.  It saw many parishioners coming forward to offer this almsgiving.

The youth took over the running of the programme this year. It is not just to fulfill their calendar activities but through it, they learn teamwork, help each other, and understand the purpose of life. More youth are encouraged to come forward to join them in this activity and the door is open to all.

A total of 21 pints of blood was collected and all collections were handled by the staff of Papar Hospital.

The next blood donation drive is scheduled for August and the last one for the year will be during the Advent Season. – Jeremy Chin, photo by Jane Lajami
