Catechetical Sunday at Holy Trinity Church, Tawau

Catechetical Sunday this year which focussed on the theme "Giving the young a voice through the Word" was celebrated at Holy Trinity Church Tawau on Sunday 20th October 2009 in the BM Children Mass. Children from the Sunday school provided the choir, readers, and collectors for the mass.
The celebrant - Msgr. Nicholas Ong
In his homily, Msgr. Nicholas Ong told the congregation that the Church is always eager to hear from our young parishioners. Their voices and aspirations are important to us.
He wished that they continue to get actively involved in church functions and ministries. In this regard, he encouraged them to be in the parish BECs or the Neocatechumenal Way of life where they can participate in Bible sharing and community building.

Msgr. Nicholas also reminded the congregation that as we are now in the Year of the Priests, it is even more important that we pray not only for our priests but also for more vocations. We need more priests to lead us in our young diocese.

Commissoning the catechists

During the mass, the Rector also commissioned all the catechists involved in the Sunday School and the RCIA/RCIC process. Catechists are not only entrusted to impart religious knowledge to others but also to be witnesses of the faith. Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to reflect upon the role each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing down the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Therefore there is a need for all to rededicate themselves to the ministry as a community of faith.


The celebration ended with a fellowship at the parish canteen.
