Fr David leading the Opening Prayer
Tawau : Taking advantage of the public holiday, the Filipino Pastoral Committee of Holy Trinity Church organized a 'Family Day' on 1st May 2012 at the basement of the Parish Hall. The fun-filled event with a host of games attracted more than 200 members of the community.
Know your folks

Fun time for the veterans, Mr and Mrs Degario
Lilybeth Lim, the Chairperson of the community in her brief address, said that the gathering could provide a basis for bonding, a necessary element in community building. She hoped members would have a strong sense of belonging to the community providing always, service to the Church. The community should never journey in isolation but to be an integrated part of the wider community, the Church. The presence of the youth is a sign of vitality within the community. She urged them to be more involved as they are the future of the Church.
Tug-a-war
Do you still recognize me?
Mario Domingo, the PPC Chairman called on the members to focus on the family, a truly little church or better known as a domestic church which should be rooted in the mission of the Church. It is through the family, that the faith could be passed on to the children and built up. 'The family is, so to speak, the domestic Church. In it parents should , by their word and example, be the first preachers of the faith to their children.' (Vatican II , Constitution on the Church)

  1. An excellent example of 'we are the church' with the young, the not so young and the not young anymore categories all involved in making the 'family day' a beautiful witness of Christ. God bless the Filipino community. Continue to serve the church.
