KOTA KINABALU – Thirty-four young priests (below five years of priesthood) from Malaysia and Singapore participated in the annual gathering hosted by Kota Kinabalu Archdiocese on 23-27 Apr 2018.
Among the activities are three input sessions from Father Antonio Pernia of the Society of Divine Word (SVD) Philippines, meeting the parishioners of St Peter Claver Ranau, and having a cultural tour around KK and Ranau.
The inputs touched on Pope Francis and his mission (two sessions) as well as a session on the challenges of mission in the Church.
The annual gathering is organised by the episcopal commission for diocesan priests and seminaries headed by Bishop Richard Ng of Miri on the fourth week of Easter. It is a time for all the young priests to catch up with each other and share their experiences and challenges encountered in their priestly ministry.
