KOTA KINABALU – Members of the different youth groups/ministries showcased their talents at the Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish Family Night Concert and Dinner at the parish centre here on 24 June 2017.
The event took place after the Sunset Mass presided by Archbishop John Wong. Joining him at the altar were retired Archbishop John Lee and Father Joshua Liew.
Around 700 people including the religious sisters and pastoral council chairman Jason Joenoi turned up for the dinner and concert.
The event was marked by a variety of performances including testimonies by a young altar boy in English, a youth in BM and another in Mandarin, on how the parish has touched their lives and why they remain in the parish.
A surprise number was the cake-cutting by 83-year-old Abp Lee, to mark his 30th episcopal anniversary (June 26).
Among the highlights were the rendition of “Amazing Grace” by assistant pastor Father Joshua Liew and his band, and the medley choral performance by the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.
The event ended with the lighting of candles of all those present for the song presentation of Christopher Rice’s “Go Light Your World” (1995) before the closing prayer and blessing by Abp Wong.
