Sandakan : Construction work to the proposed three-storey Diocesan Pastoral cum Worship Centre began last October, is due to complete by October this year. The centre with a built-up area of approximately 19,000 square feet and when completed will house the Youth Apostolate Office, the resource centre and the worship hall at the ground floor, the finance office, catechetical and pastoral office and the commission offices at the first floor, Bishop's Office, Executive Secretary Office, Soccom office, meeting room, pantry and six rooms for priests / visitors at the 2nd floor.
The floor slab for the 2nd floor has been concreted and the form work for the columns has been raised followed by form work for roof beams. Thereafter roof trusses will be assembled ready for the fixing of the roof top. At the meantime, work on brick laying at the ground floor has started.
As of date, the total fund raised, stands close to RM2 million against the total cost of RM3.5 million. We still fall short of some RM1.5 million. All the four parishes are gearing up efforts to solicit funds from parishioners, supporters and well wishers, through arranged fund raising projects.
