Tawau : 14 children from both the English and Bahasa Malaysia Children Liturgy of the Word of Holy Trinity Church, accompanied by their facilitators, headed to St. Jude Semporna on 11th March 2018 for their 4th annual Lenten Visit.  Sr. Mary Martha Jonik fsic, the spiritual adviser was pleased and delighted to accompany the group as a sign of support and encouragement.
Michael, the PPC chairman of St. Jude together with Ms. Maria, the Sunday School animator, with 50 other members, comprising teachers, children and youth were at hand to warmly welcome the team from Holy Trinity.
The event commenced with an Opening Prayer led by Sr. Martha fsic followed by self-introduction by facilitators of Holy Trinity Children Liturgy and facilitators of St Jude Sunday School. Sr Martha fsic then presented a session on the season of Lent, the meaning of Lent and how it is observed by Catholics.
The facilitators taught the children a few hymns for the Lenten season. They had a great time singing the hymns. The children from St Jude and Holy Trinity participated in interactive games. It set an excellent platform for the children to get to know one another.
The Holy Trinity Children Liturgy Team gave some goody bags to the children of St Jude, while St. Jude prepared refreshment for all present.
Though the visit was brief but the interactive activity has established good relationship bond among the children of both churches. Such visit is commendable as it brings people of the same faith closer to one another.
