Solemn Charge ~ Year of Faith - Read the Catechism Of the Catholic Church in a Year

Mengikuti Jejak Kristus

Mengetahui dan Mengasihi iman Katolik

Tuesday, June 20, 2017


Prepared by Martha Chia

In conjunction with Teachers’ Day, Sandakan Catholic Teachers’ Guild (CTG) had organized a Thanksgiving Mass and a Thanksgiving Dinner. Both events were held on Saturday, 17 June 2017.
The thanksgiving mass was a “2 in 1” mass, to celebrate Teachers’ Day and the retirement of Mdm. Maureen Lai, the Advisor for Catholic Teachers Guild (CTG). This Eucharistic celebration was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Christopher Ireneus. 
Fr. Christopher began his homily by saying that the Eucharistic celebration is not only to celebrate Teachers’ Day but also to celebrate being a teacher as a vocation. Teaching is a noble vocation and by treating this job as a vocation, teachers are able to bring Christ in their career. He also encouraged teachers not to give up easily despite facing all sorts of pressures and obstacles. He thanked all teachers for their great efforts. He also acknowledged the efforts done by his former teachers at SMK Sandakan. During the celebration, Fr. Christopher blessed the new line up for Sandakan CTG.
In the evening, a thanksgiving dinner was held at Equatorial Seafood restaurant. In his speech, Rt. Rev. Bishop Julius Dusin Gitom has called upon all teachers to join CTG and encouraged teachers to take the NPQEL course. It’s a course especially for those aspiring to become a principal or headmaster/headmistress. It’s the hope of the Church that more can fill up the administration posts especially in mission schools.
