CATHEDRAL ST. MARY'S SANDAKAN
|late Fr. Tobias Chi|
Recalling the last 25 years we give thanks to God and to the late Fr. Tobias Chi who introduced the RCIA to the parish as one way of evangelisation. He was the rector of the then St Mary's Church from 1984 - 1999.
With his wisdom and effort the RCIA has bloomed with many parishioners who has gone through the sessions and are currently serving the Church in various ministries.
On the run up to Pentecost Sunday, slides of the last twenty five years were shown before mass to revive some old memories and a writeup on the process of the RCIA was published in the weekly bulletin. A 40-table subscribed dinner will also be held on the 12th night and the organising committee invites all parishioners who have gone through the process to a get together with their sponsors, friends and family members. The night will be lined with some performances and some testimonials from the newly baptised.
A 'Good Tiding Magazine' commemorating the 25th Anniversary will also be published for the benefit of the faithful.
