PENAMPANG – St Theresa Tambunan held its first fundraising concert dinner for its building project at the KadazanDusun Cultural Association Centre here on 23 Sept 2017.
Over 800 people turned up in support of the event. Among them were Father Anthony Mikat, the current pastor, Father William Poilis, former pastor, and several religious sisters.
The event organising committee was headed by Pontius Otigil.
In his speech, Building Committe head Daniel Kinsik explained that the inaugural fundraiser is to help build a new RM4.5m church as the existing church cannot be extended anymore to accommodate increasing members. The target date for completion is 2019 in time for the centenary of the parish. Once the building is completed, the existing church will be renovated to become the parish hall.
The Tambunan choir – past and present – gave many stirring performances in English, BM and Kadazan. There were also performances from the Labuan youths.
Fr Mikat did his bit too with his rendition of “How Great Thou Art” to the delight of the diners.
