BARAM, Sarawak – Long Lama church in middle Baram became a parish on 21 Jan 2018.

Bishop Richard Ng installed Father Lazarus Swinie of Kuching as rector of the new parish of the Blessed Sacrament during the installation Mass in the presence of about 500 people from the different longhouses.  Long Lama was formerly under Lapok Parish.  The new parish has over 30 longhouses and a few schools under its jurisdiction.

Earlier, the bishop made a pastoral visit to Long Banyok, a Kenyah Longhouse in middle Baram. This is also the longhouse of Msgr Francis Kuleh, the Vicar General of Miri Diocese. The bishop celebrated Sunset Mass for about 200 people at the Church of Yesus Juruselamat and later blessed a statue of Christ the Redeemer at the entrance of the church. – dioceseofmiri.blogspot
