Established in 1992, the pastoral community was first called Kumpulan Kebajikan Indonesia Nusantara Timur which later changed to be called Kumpulan Kebajikan Katolik Indonesia. In 2004 it was further renamed Komuniti Pastoral Indonesia to reflect on its role in extending pastoral care to members of the community.
In his homily Msgr. Nicholas reminded the congregation that God created us without any distinction of anyone race to another.
"We are all children of God," he said, "divided only by man made boundaries. In our relationship with God, the spirit of brotherhood among all the races should prevail."
