圣玛莉主教座堂华协属下主日学亲子讲座


2019520日(星期一),圣玛莉主教座堂华协属下主日学成功举办亲子讲座。主题为“以基督为中心,加强亲子关系”。

               当天早上8时,主日学的家长偕同孩子陆陆续续的抵达圣玛莉主教座堂堂区活动中心。登记后,讲座于早上8:30掀开序幕。此讲座由亚庇总教区从事青少年事工的黄宗莉姐妹主讲。第一个环节以破冰游戏开始,然后黄宗莉姐妹进行了一个以“动物的叫声”寻找同伴的游戏,带入了“听”的主题,与大家分享“听”的重要性,吁请大家学会“聆听”彼此的心声,加强亲子关系。

               然后,黄宗莉姐妹将家长和孩子分开,先让家长选择适当的颜色以绘画以幸福家庭为主题的图画。尔后将剩余的颜色分给孩子们作画。在这环节中,可以看到家长们选的颜色都是较为鲜艳的颜色,而剩下的较为暗淡的颜色则留给了孩子。最后,父母和孩子重新聚在一起,分享彼此的图画。

             茶点后,大家进入第二个环节,即家长与孩子的对话。在这环节中,家长孩子依然分开,小组讨论由黄宗莉姐妹已准备好的题目。主日学的老师则负责引导孩子们回答有关的问题。之后,家长及孩子们聆听彼此的答案。黄宗莉姐妹也藉此带出有关的信息。

             午餐后,黄宗莉姐妹让家长聚集后,与家长做深入的分享及祈祷,以准备接下来的濯足礼。在这期间,孩子们则在老师们的带领下制作双亲节卡予家长们,并在卡片内写信给家长。

             当天的最后一个活动为整个讲座的高潮——家长为孩子们洗脚。无论是洗脚前,家长与孩子的对话;或洗脚后,孩子送卡片与礼物予家长,场面是那么的感人。虽然场面有点乱糟糟的,但流露在彼此间的爱是那么的温馨。

            虽然是一整天的讲座,但黄宗莉姐妹风趣活泼的讲座及灵活的双赢活动成功的带动整个场面,将所要表达的信息成功的带给在场的每一位参加者。使大家获益不浅。

最后大家以非常热烈的掌声恭喜最佳组别的仁爱组。然后带着非常愉悦的心情回家了

Sandakan : Culture is the characteristic of a particular group of people defined by everything from language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music, costumes and arts. Through culture, we learn to understand and accept people of other ethnic groups, living as brothers and sisters in a Christ-centered community.

For the first time, St. Mary’s Cathedral Parish celebrated the 2-day “Parish Cultural Day 2019” celebration on 11th and 12th May 2019, themed “To nurture active church participation with the Eucharist as the source and summit of Christian life”. Over 1000 parishioners attended the event.
The first day of the program was more on traditional games namely Chinese Chess, Burr Puzzle, Diabolo and Sepak Bulu Ayam (Chinese) Rampanau, Monopuk, Monungkava, Monokon Bakas and Monuntung Babandil (Dusun), Bewiton and Keso (Timorese), Cara Cross and Luksong Tinik Brod (Filipino). The purpose of the games is to introduce to the younger generation its formats so that they will better understand their roots, identity and belonging. 
At the same time, there were cooking demonstrations of traditional dishes in each traditional hut such as Jagung Titih, Chicken Adobo, Bosou Sada, Hinava, Chicken Pansu, Umai Kaki Ayam, Sayur Ensabi, Tang Yuan (Sweet rice dumpling), Hakka Hee Pan (steamed bun), Zongzi (Rice dumpling) and many more. In the afternoon, the ethnic groups, in traditional costumes presented cultural dances accompanied by traditional music.
On the second day, the Eucharistic celebration commenced at 8.30am, presided over by Rt, Rev. Julius Dusin Gitom and concelebrated by Rev. Fr. David Garaman, Rev. Fr. Thomas Makajil and Rev. Fr. Sunny Chung.
Bishop Julius in his homily said, "What is interesting in our parish is that we remain united in spite of our diversity because we believe in the one shepherd, Jesus Christ. Through the Cultural Day activity, parishioners are united to implement one of our diocesan missions: "Nurturing active church participation with the Eucharist as the source and summit of Christian life." This is to say that whatever we do, we keep focus on Christ as the center and channel of grace to our lives as Christians.
On the same day, we also celebrate Good Shepherd's Sunday or Vocation Sunday. We are asked to pray for all calls, especially the call to family and community life, call to the priesthood and religious life. Being also Mothers’ Day, the prelate called upon all members to pray for the well-being of their mothers.
Pilis Malim, Chairman of the Parish Pastoral Council in his speech shared, "The culture of every race is a culture that God has given for a particular purpose, especially in terms of the unity of the people of that particular race. God also allows us to use the culture to express our gratitude and to glorify Him." He also cited 1 Cor 11 : 2, Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you.
The process in preparing for the event is a clear sign where the people of all ethnic groups in the parish came together in full commitment to realize the Cultural Day celebration. It is a step forward in achieving our vision goal to build a ‘Christ-centred community, serving one another with love.’
Rev. Fr. David Garaman, the rector of St Mary’s Cathedral, in his speech said, “The celebration has strengthened the unity of the people through the Eucharist as the source of unity for all our activities. The 2nd Diocesan Delegates Assembly has resolved to prioritize the first diocesan mission goal for the year 2019 that is to nurture active church participation with the Eucharist as the source and summit of Christian life”.
The event is geared towards the said motive and the involvement of the various communities is a sign of cementing relationship bond in building a Christ-centred community. He extended his appreciation to all the members of the Parish Pilgrimage and Social Function Ministry and all kind sponsors in realizing the first Parish Cultural Day celebration.
After the Eucharistic celebration, the parishioners together with the clergy, religious and the Bishop adjourned to the Cultural Day site, adjacent to the Parish Hall to witness the launching ceremony of the monument that symbolizes the Eucharist. It was graced by Bishop Julius. After which they visited the 6 main traditional huts of the 6 main ethnic groups of the Parish, namely Tionghua, Dusun Labuk, Dusun Tambunan, Timorese, Iban and the Filipinos.
During the 2-day celebration, parishioners were encouraged to wear their own traditional costumes. It was a beautiful and colorful celebration where we see people in their different costumes, music, dances, arts, crafts, foods and languages.
The event ended at around 3 pm on the second day of the event. Through this event, we believe that the various communities can journey together in harmony in building a Christ-centred community. We need to continue to pursue our dream in achieving unity through diversity and for that to happen each of us is called to active church participation.
