Tawau : The presence of His Lordship Bishop Datuk Julius D. Gitom at Holy Trinity Church on the evening of Saturday 24th November 2012 had given the local parishioners the opportunity to spent time with him in an informal dinner fellowship, organized by the Parish Pastoral Council.
The prelate was in Tawau a day earlier for the conferment of the Sacrament of Confirmation for some 136 confirmands on the following day, Sunday 25th November 2012, the Solemnity of Christ the King, marking the end of the liturgical year.
Some 40 parishioners; the clergy, religious, PPC members, church group leaders and the parish staff attended the gathering. It was an occasion to celebrate the prelate's belated birthday, his 5th Episcopal Ordination, the 5th anniversary of the Diocese and also his recent conferment of PGDK, an award from the State Government which carries the title 'Datuk'.
The faithful of the Diocese of Sandakan are blessed under the guidance, wisdom and prudence of His Lordship and we will continue to profess loyalty and obedience to him and continue to serve one another with God's love.
