KKIP, Telipok – The Chinese-speaking senior parishioners of Sacred Heart Cathedral (SHC) Karaminsing visited the newly blessed Church of the Divine Mercy here on 22 Oct 2017.
After the 7 am Chinese Mass at SHC, almost 90 senior parishioners gathered at the right wing of the parish centre for a quick breakfast before boarding three chartered buses for their trip to the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP) church.
The church was officially blessed and opened the day before (Oct 21) by Archbishop John Wong.
Led by Charlie and Catherine Chia of the Chinese unit of the SH Pastoral Care of the Aged Ministry, the group prayed the Divine Mercy chaplet before the huge mural of the Divine Mercy Image painted on the sanctuary wall.
A collection was made for the upkeep of the church and given to David Andrew of the catechetical ministry there. He briefed the visitors on the history of the church.
Later, the group left for their annual lunch (with games) at Wong Kok Restaurant Penampang.
The outing is part of the yearly activities organised by the pastoral care unit.
