MIRI – Bishop Richard Ng, accompanied by Father Liam Durrant,  visited Rumah Entebang and celebrated Mass there on 10 Mar 2018.

The Iban longhouse is an old wooden building built in the late 1940s under Tuai Rumah Empading Ak Lambor and has 62 doors.  It is located at Sungai Bakas Sibuti Bekenu, about 63 km from Miri.

Around 150 people attended the Mass and the welcome dinner at the longhouse.

The next day, March 11, the bishop and the priest concelebrated Mass at the Townhall, Dewan Rumah Nawin Ak Lu at Kg Penempatan Bukit Peninjau Sibuti.

Around 300 parishioners participated in the Mass.

The Chapel Gerija Indai Maria, Bukit Peninjau, currently under renovation, is just 800 meters away. – Ben Chang, Miri newsblog.
