A story must be told ~ Let the world know!

DS / st
Kunak : On our (Anna Teresa and Sharon Tan from The Sandakan Diocesan Youth Office) way back to Sandakan from St. Thomas Chapel, Bombalai Tawau, we stopped by St. Peter's Church, Kunak to pay a visit to the young people who were around at the church compound in the late afternoon, 12th October 2014.
L-R : Jerry Ompoy, Larry Ompoy, William Ortega, Janehope Ortega, Joenifer Tumala Ortega, Richard Ortega Visitacion and Marcelina Ortega Jr.
We were introduced to seven young gentlemen from Tingkayu, located in Kunak district. It is some three-hour ride by road to the church. It is surrounded with palm oil estates and there is a palm oil mill and a paper factory. These young gentlemen have to travel on motorcycle to attend catechism classes since January 2014 at St. Peter's Church Kunak every Sunday.

They shared that there is no Catholic chapel in or around their place. Hence they have to spend six hours on the road for a return trip. There is no Catholic pastoral worker or catechist reaching out to them. Other denominations often visit them in their place and share with them about Christ. 

However, they chose the Catholic faith over others. That's why they brave the journey because of the faith. According to Richard Ortega, his sister is a member of the Catholic Youth in St. Peter's Church. After joining the youth ministry in the church, they saw positive changes in her attitude and behavior. That is one reason that attracts them to stay faithful with the Catholic church.

"We are born in a Catholic family and we want to learn more about our own (Catholic) faith and love has brought us here" - Richard Ortega Visitacion

"Our hope is to share what we have learned here and our beautiful experience encountered in the church to our family members and other Catholic families in Tingkayu. They do not have the opportunity to attend  church." - Joenifer Tumala Ortega

We were inspired by the story related to us. It posed a challenge to us and may be to all other Catholic youths. We stay close to the church and we don't need the three-hour drive to reach the nearest church yet we have many excuses not to attend church. We are blessed and glad that we have met these group of young people who desire to meet Christ. Their story has a message for all Catholic youths; to stay close to Christ in all circumstances. 

He said to them, 'For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there", and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you' - Matthew 17:20

Their commitment has brought Jesus Christ better known through the social media. The purpose of the meeting was to review on the progress of the annual plan for 2014 and to chart out the plan for 2015. In the meeting, members discussed at length on how to enhance the role of DSCC in collaboration with other ministries to better share and spread the Good News. 
George Lawadin of the Diocesan Social Communication Office shared on how make use of the web and to proper tag photos to be uploaded to our blogspot for easy access for information. Apart from disseminating events happening across the diocese, the blog also serves as an archive for storage of important information. Our church has enlightened us on the importance social media as a medium for us to share the word of God and it is vital for us to know on how to properly use it.

Dalius L. Lobinjang and Francis Tan facilitated the session on how to be a good writer. A good lead will captivate the interest of the readers to read on. The writer must learn the techniques of covering events with the aim to bring the Good News to the readers. The core message of any church events must be linked to Jesus.  Through writing we may spread the salvation message of the Lord as well as being part of the evangelization process.






Monica Loh presented certificates of  attendance to all the participants. As an appreciation to their commitment in contributing articles to the diocesan blog, Monica presented a voice recorder each to the representatives of St Dominic's Church and Holy Trinity Church, Tawau.

Sandakan : The youth ministers of the Diocesan Youth Office, the campus minister and four students from Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Sandakan visited the Politeknik Catholic students on 16th October 2014 in the Politeknik Campus for the second time. 

The objective for the second meet-up was to prepare them spiritually for their upcoming exam. The UMS students joined in for the gathering, hoping to build up relationship bond since both campuses are located next to each other. The program started with sing-a-long, praise and worship and opening prayer. 

The night continued with a symbolic prayer where each student was asked to lift up his/her prayer in a creative way. Some drew, some wrote and some used clay to shape up their prayers. Each had their own way. The night ended with a prayer over the students. For some, it was an emotional moment as they missed the family back home and for some, it was a night filled with joy and love. It was a fruitful night for everyone.

All the best and see you all in our prayers!

YLC Club ~ We Are The Church Moving Forth To Proclaim His Name

BY DS / st
TAWAU : The Youth ministers from the Diocesan Youth Office (DYO) together with the youths from Holy Trinity Church (HTC), Tawau visited St. Thomas Chapel, Bombalai, some 30 KM from Tawau town on 11th October 2014. Some 30 youths gathered at the Chapel for the Youth Leaders' Camp (YLC) Club. Also present at the event was Sr Anita fsic.

Petrus welcoming the team members and the participants
On arrival, we were welcomed by Petrus, one of the elders serving in St. Thomas Chapel. The program started with action songs led by the Parish Youth Apostolate (PYA) Tawau to energize the participants. It was followed by games where youths from Holy Trinity Church and St. Thomas interacted and blended well with one another. 
The next session was the viewing of the video on the previous Youth Leader's Camp (YLC-III) held at St. Dominic's Church, Lahad Datu last February. The youths in several groups discussed on what touched them most and how they felt after watching the video. Most expressed a desire to gather with other youths from other parishes and some wanted to participate in the next YLC scheduled to be held in Telupid early next year.
The local community prepared lunch for the team members and the participants. While waiting for the next session, the youths displayed their talents by plucking their guitars and some sang along. It was awesome to see young people from different backgrounds and cultures mixing well to project the church, a church for all. 
In the afternoon, participants again in groups shared about their ups and downs while serving in the youth ministry. They encountered common issues and faced similar challenges. However, their strong spirit to move forth to bring lapsed peers back to the church is most commendableIt was a fruitful and wonderful time for everyone.
 
In the evening, the youths together with families staying around St. Thomas Chapel assembled in front of the Grotto to pray the Holy Rosary together. The group rosary, in prayer and meditation brought the people together. In union there is strength.
 
The evening continued with "Friendship Night." Participants were asked to explain what  friendship meant to them in creative ways. The only way to have a friend is to be a friend. Making friends and developing friendship is in fact a relationship process. One way to build and sustain friendship is contained in Luke 6 : 31, 'And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.' The lyric in the hymn 'What a friend we have in Jesus' is  excellent for reflection regarding friendship.
The families were also present to show their support. They enjoyed the night together with the youths. It was a night filled with love and joy.
The night and the program ended with a Closing Prayer led by Sr. Anita fsicWe are blessed to have the parents and families coming forth to support us during the program. We are the church and we want to go forth to proclaim His name.

Aktiviti tersebut merupakan sahutan peserta-peserta Unite Camp dari St Mark dan St Peter untuk menjangkau kepada orang yang kurang bernasib baik. Unite Camp yang baru saja dianjurkan pada bulan lalu di  Katedral St. Mary Sandakan bertemakan "..berbahagialah mereka yang murah hatinya, kerana mereka akan beroleh kemurahan.." (MT 5:7)  telah mendorong segolongan belia untuk  membuka hati membantu yang memerlukan.
Ketibaan belia telah disambut dengan mesra oleh penghuni-penghuni Cheshire Home dan saudari Cecilia Kimin, salah seorang petugas pusat tersebut. Saudari Cecilia memperkenalkan dan menerangkan latar belakang Chesire Home.
Cheshire Home adalah rumah Amal pertama di Malaysia ditubuhkan pada 16 Julai 1974. Cheshire home adalah rumah amal yang menjaga orang kurang upaya. Di Sabah Cheshire Home pertama di buka di Kota Kinabalu pada 29 Januari 1983, sekarang sudah berusia 31 tahun. Manakala di Sandakan ditubuhkan pada 8 April 2000 berusia 14 tahun. Seramai 19 orang warga kurang upaya adalah penghuni sepenuh masa di Chesire Home, Sandakan, manakala sebilangan kecil hanya berada di situ pada siang hari. Marilah kita yang banyak menerima berkat dari Tuhan, menghulurkan tangan, membantu mengurangkan beban mereka.
 
Acara yang dilakukan oleh belia semasa lawatan tersebut adalah membantu membersihkan persekitaran rumah seperti memotong rumput, menyapu, membersih bilik air,  dapur dan sebagainya. 
Warga Cheshire Home amat gembira dengan kehadiran para belia tersebut. Salah seorang peserta bersyukur dengan lawatan tersebut terutamanya membantu dalam kerja-kerja amal di persekitaran rumah tersebut. Melalui aktiviti ini belia mengalami kasih Tuhan dan sesama secara nyata. 
"Hendaknya terangmu bercahaya di depan orang, supaya mereka melihat perbuatanmu yang baik dan memuliakan Bapamu yang di surga (Matius 5:16)
