PAPAR – After the Sunset Mass, parishioners of St Joseph’s Church here gathered together to celebrate the 8th priestly anniversary of assistant pastor Father Rayner Bisius at the Mother of Mercy open hall on 16 Sept 2017.
Fr Bisius, in his brief message, thanked everyone for the warm welcome accorded him when he arrived three months ago. He exhorted the parishioners to constantly pray for him and all priests in their priestly ministry.
Prior to that, Johnny Sitamin, chairman of the parish pastoral council, thanked everyone involved in preparing the event.
The evening programme included several solo and choral singing performances as well as traditional dances.
The night ended with a closing prayer and blessing by Fr Bisius. – William Charles Mindus (SOCCOM Papar Limbahau)
