KOTA KINABALU – As part of their outreach programme for the centenary celebration, the Pauline Cooperators went to St Ireneus Chapel Kiau Nuluh Kota Belud on 21-22 Apr 2018.
Seventeen missioners including Pauline Sister Jennifer Han took part in the outreach.
Around 600 people – young and old – were present. Activities included vocation sharing, media awareness session, book mission, and games. Prayer books and holy pictures (stampitas) were distributed free to the children.
As a token of remembrance, the chapel was gifted with a set of BM Sunday and Daily missals as well as a framed poster of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
Kampung Kiau Nuluh is located about 10 kilometres from Kinabalu Park towards the south of the mountain.
The earthquake that struck Sabah in June 2015 had been a devastating and nightmarish experience for the villagers of this village. But they managed to move on with the help of many non-governmental organisations notably the Good Shepherd Services (GSS), Sabah Credit Corporation (SCC), Raleigh Borneo, and PACOS (Partnership of Community Organisations Sabah), an organisation that strives to empower indigenous communities.
The Association of Pauline Cooperators was founded by Blessed James Alberione in June 1917. It is made up of committed lay people, young and old, women and men, who believe in the value and ideal of the Pauline charism. The members are linked in spirit and work to the whole Pauline Family including the Daughters of St Paul, and they continue, promote, and recommend the multifaceted apostolate of the Pauline Family in all spheres of society.
