First and foremost, congratulations to all our SPM students on your achievement and success! May this be the start of an exciting and promising journey ahead.
Our Parish has several events and celebrations planned for June 2023. We have been promoting the upcoming Eucharistic Adoration for the past two weeks, and on Saturday, 10 June 2023, in conjunction with the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), a Eucharistic Adoration was held from 8.00 am to 5.30 pm. This was followed by Novena to Our Mother of the Perpetual Help and Sunset Mass. The day began with adoration, the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, followed by Morning Prayer (Lauds).
Every hour from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm, the liturgical team had assigned BEC members and Parish ministries to come and spend an hour in prayer and adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament in the Church. We also created a prayer booklet that served as a guide for anyone attending the prayer and adoration. All parishioners were encouraged to spend some time in Church during the day. Jesus waits to welcome you in the Blessed Sacrament. He is really, truly and fully present in the Consecrated Host, beckoning you to be with Him.
Father’s Day falls on 18 June this year. We will celebrate in a similar way as Mother’s Day was celebrated in the Church. Our Parish Youth will prepare a special surprise for all the fathers of our Parish. Let us ensure that this celebration is unforgettable!
This year, 22 candidates will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday, 9 July 2023. The Catechetical Team will be organising a Confirmation camp for these candidates from Friday, June 23 to Sunday, June 25. The confirmation camp will be centred around the theme, “O Holy Spirit, Descend Plentifully into My Heart,” as stated by St. Augustine of Hippo. We have invited Nicholas Kuan and five others from the Church of St. Francis of Assisi in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, to coordinate and facilitate this camp. We pray that our students will be united more firmly in Christ Jesus and sealed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We pray for the presenting team, catechism teachers, and students. We hope everything will run smoothly and without hiccups.
The Novena Masses in conjunction with the Feast of Saint Thomas, the Apostle, are scheduled from Saturday, 24 June to 3 July 2023. The 9 days Novena prayers and Masses, will conclude with a Thanksgiving Mass on Monday, 3 July 2023. The feast day committee has chosen the main theme – “A Saint For Our Times.”
The committee members would like to encourage every BEC member and all parishioners to join our Novena and Feast Day events. Let us come together for these celebrations in honour of St Thomas, our Patron who proclaimed Jesus Christ as “My Lord and My God!”
