Appointment of New Editor

To the Clergy, Religious and Lay Faithful
June 1, 2021

It is with pleasure that we announce the new editor of the  HERALD newspaper, Ms Patricia Pereira, with effect from  July 1, 2021. Ms Pereira has  been with the Media and Communications Office of the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur for  the past four years. She brings  with her years of experience in  the fields of media and communication, both in the Church  and in the corporate sector. We  are certain that she will carry  out the duties as Editor for the  good of the Church and the community.

We also record our gratitude  to Fr Lawrence Andrew SJ, the  retiring editor, for his 27 years  of service in not only starting  this publication but also nurturing it to the high standards that  the HERALD now displays.

Since its inception on September 8, 1994 in the Archdiocese  of Kuala Lumpur, Fr Lawrence  has expanded the HERALD’s  distribution throughout Peninsular Malaysia and, eventually,  to Sabah and Sarawak.

In its mission to communicate up-to-date news and  Christian values, Fr Lawrence  and his team have consistently reported on major events and  milestones in parishes and in  the dioceses. Their work also  indirectly serves as an archive  of the history of the Catholic  Church in Malaysia.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Fr Lawrence ensured  that the HERALD continued to  reach out to as many people as  possible in a digital format.

We hope that the new editorial team can live up to the  legacy which he leaves behind  and continue to take this publication to greater heights.

Most Rev. Leow, D.D, Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur

Rt Rev Sebastian Francis, D.D, Bishop of Penang

Rt Rev Bernard Paul, D.D, Bishop of Malacca-Johor
