Recollection for Catechists

Settling down for the recollection

Sandakan : A half-day recollection was held in the Parish Hall of St. Mary’s Cathedral on Wednesday 16th. September 2009 from 8.30 am to about noon for all catechists from the St. Mary’s Cathedral Parish.

Listening to the input session

About sixty cathechists comprising of the three language groups from St. Mary’s Cathedral, St Paul’s Church, Ulu Dusun and Our Lady of Fatima Church, Beluran attended the said event.

Sr Lilianna fsic leading the recollection

It was conducted by Sisters Appolonia fsic, Lillian fsic and Lilliana fsic and some translation into Chinese were done for the benefit of the Chinese speaking catechists.

It was also a time for the catechists to reflect on their critical role in response to God's call in the Catechetical ministry and to prepare themselves before taking the pledge on Catechetical Sunday which falls on 20th September 2009.

Deep in meditation

The reflection based mainly on being 'servant of God' where all the catechists were reminded on the service rendered to the Church in helping the priests and religious in the part of guiding the young through Sunday School and the adults in the RCIA process. The Sisters also talked on effective communication, collaboration and the importance of unity among the faithful as like the apostle Paul in his epistle to the Ephesians, exhorts his readers to be "diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."

Immediately after the two activities were completed the whole group adjourned to the chapel for the adoration. The short and meaningful reflection ended at about noon and the participants were refreshed to continue to serve in building the Lord's Kingdom.
