TAWAU INTER-CHURCH UNITY PRAYER



Tawau :As part of our parish’s commitment to Ecumenism as promulgated by the Second Vatican Council's Decree on Ecumenism Unitatis Redintegratio, Holy Trinity Parish Tawau hosted the Inter-Church Unity Prayer Session held at the parish hall on the evening of Wednesday, 30th March 2011.
Participants from Tawau InterChurch

Some 800 participants from various Christian churches including the Basel, Methodist, Anglican, Shalom, SIB, and Calvary Church as well as our own Holy Trinity Church attended the function.
Together we pray for unity among Churches

Aware that Ecumenism takes as it starting point that Christ founded just one Church, not many churches; hence the Roman Catholic Church has as its ultimate hope and objective - that through prayer, study, and dialogue, the historically separated bodies may come again to be reunited with it. 



Session began with the Opening Prayer followed by a ‘repentance prayer' led by the Chairman of the Tawau Inter Church Committee.
Praise and Worship session
A pastor from each church presented his/her petition and Sr Marysia fsic presented the petition on behalf of Holy Trinity Church.
Coming together in the spirit of Christian unity
Prayers offered focused mainly on world peace, Christian unity and for our nation Malaysia, its leaders as well as for our youths.
Msgr Ong and pastors from the various churches
Though each church may present its prayer differently, a pervasive feeling of unity of the one God and one Lord was keenly felt.

Session ended at 9.15pm with the Closing Prayer by Msgr .Nicholas Ong.
