Sandakan : A total of 52 newly baptized, their sponsors and all animators of the RCIA process attended the annual neophyte’s nite at the St Mary’s Cathedral Parish Hall on Sunday 3rd May 2009. The occasion was a gesture of the Cathedral to welcome the new members to the big community of the Catholic faith.

Fr Thomas Makajil, the rector of St Mary’s Cathedral graced the function. He commended the core team and all animators of the Parish RCIA process headed by Alban Lagan for their strong commitment and dedication, working directly with participants in the process.

He urged the sponsors to continue to walk with the neophytes in their journey of faith. He added that there is a need for people to carry out a variety of functions and to support the process. He extended his sincere appreciation to the sponsors for their role in contributing to the success of the RCIA process.

He welcomed the neophytes to the family of God and called upon them to live a Christ-like life for God’s glory. Loving God, loving others and one self is the gist of Christ’s teaching. He hoped that as they have known Christ they will bring Christ to others. God expects all of us to share the Good News with others. It is a privilege introducing others to Jesus, helping others to discover and explore the goodness of life.
