Sandakan: In conjunction with the Lenten season, The Star of Yahweh Covenant Community (SYCC) organised a retreat themed “Following the Passion of Christ” on 23rd – 24th March 2012 at Room A and B of St. Mary's Cathedral Parish Hall. Over 50 parishioners attended the two-day retreat conducted by Daniel Kong and Anthony Lim, both elders of the Light of Jesus Christ Covenant Community (LJCCCC) of Kota Kinabalu.
The rector of St Mary's Cathedral, Fr. Thomas Makajil graced the opening of the retreat and he hoped that through such retreat the participants would gain a deeper understanding of the Passion of Christ. He called upon the participants to give their all to the retreat. It is through personal reflection and meditation that one would be able to search deep into one's soul, experience conversion and bringing out the best of one's personal life. The rector also took the opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of the LJCCC in the Paitan Mission initiated by the LJCCC some 25 years ago.
