KOTA KINABALU – The Sacred Heart Divine Mercy Apostolate celebrated 10 years of ministry at the Sacred Heart Cathedral here on 16 Sept 2017.
Msgr Primus Jouil, vicar general, celebrated the thanksgiving Mass. He gave permission to the establishment of the apostolate when he was the pastor of the cathedral ten years ago.
Over 400 devotees including those from the nearby parishes turned up for the event.
After the Mass, all adjourned to the parish centre for a fellowship programme.
A video detailing the ministry’s growth, development and outreach programmes was screened with video messages from Father Ronnie Luni of Membakut, Father Nicholas Stephen of Ranau, and Father Thomas Ambuttukuzhiyil of Kerala.
After the video show, Henry Liew, coordinator of the DM Apostolate, briefed the devotees on its growth and development, from a group of seven to around 7000 members statewide today.
Tokens of appreciation were presented to several couples and individuals who have helped in spreading the message of the Divine Mercy.
Lunch was then served followed by a short programme of entertainment.
