Many activities were held during the month of June and it culminated in the half-day Parish Family Day, participated by some 400 parishioners on Saturday, 30th June beginning 7.00 am to 2.00 pm.

The objectives of the Family Day;

c) to be a platform to promote 'The family as Community of Faith'
The event was held at the Parish Hall compound where food and game stalls were set up as early as 6.00 am. The stalls were managed by the Kadazandusun, Indonesian, Chinese and the Filipino communities offering a variety of local and traditional food for breakfast and lunch. The Parish Youth Apostolate, assigned to sell assorted drinks including ice-cream, aimed to raise enough fund for their expenses in the upcoming 3rd Sabah Youth Day coming August in Tambunan.
After the Opening Prayer led by Fr David, the event began with some warm up exercises with aerobic, followed by  Poco-Poco  and Sumazau dances. Participants had a great time in the work out.
