PENAMPANG –The Korean Clerical Society of the Most Holy Trinity has opened a shop selling religious items in the ITCC Shopping Mall here.
Known as the Woori Jib Holy Item, it is owned and managed by members of the Korean congregation headed by Father Leo Choi Sangki.
Some 50 parishioners from nearby parishes, friends and supporters witnessed the blessing ceremony of the new premises on 16 Mar 2018.
Franciscan Sisters Dariah Ajap and Imelda Angang, and Marist Brother Anthony Choi were among those present.
Other guests included Penampang District Officer Luvita Koisun and Datin Sylvia Wong Bongkos.
The Rite of Blessing was officiated by Father Andrew Kim Youngjun, one of the three resident priests of the Society in Kota Kinabalu. With him was Father Lawrence Kim Jinsu. Fr Leo was away in Korea for a pastoral commitment.
The religious items are sourced from South Korea, and Fr Andrew said all sales made under the store are channelled to Woori Jib St Francis Xavier Potuki, their welfare orphanage home located at Kg Potuki, Lokawi Putatan.
Therefore, he calls for continuous support from all to Woori Jib to sustain the orphans who come from poor local Catholic families.
Woori Jib Holy Item is located at Lot No. 1-202, (Corner), Tingkat Satu, Bangunan ITCC (International Technology& Commercial Centre) Penampang, and operates from 10 am-6 pm daily.
