Twenty children received their First Holy Communion at the St Ignatius Church (SIC) 6 pm Mass on Sunday 16 October 2016. Nine of them had been baptised by Fr Albet Arockiasamy, Parish Priest of Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Puchong, at a ceremony which started at 4.45 pm and witnessed by their godparents, family members and friends. These are children of parent/s baptised as adults who want to join the Catholic Church or children of Catholic parents who have not had the opportunity to attend Sunday school (e.g. those who accompanied parents posted overseas). Each year, SIC Sunday school's special catechism programme help prepare such children who are within the Standard 3 to Form Four age group for the Sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion. Towards the end of Mass, parents of the children who have received their First Holy Communion and godparents of children who were baptised recited a pledge to be faith role models for the children.

First Cardinal for Malaysia

soterfernandezNineteen November 2016 will be a historic milestone for the Catholic Church in Malaysia as it marks the appointment of the Most Reverend Anthony Soter Fernandez to the College of Cardinals by His Holiness Pope Francis. A cardinal (Latin: sanctae romanae ecclesiae cardinalis – literally cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church) is a senior ecclesiastical leader. Cardinals are considered princes of the Church who were chosen to be close advisors to the Pope. Kuala Lumpur Archbishop Emeritus Fernandez was appointed the second Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur in 1983 and retired 20 years later. He was ordained a priest in 1966 and served as president of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei from 1987-1990 and 2000-2003. More information are available as follows: Media Statement by the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei and Vatican for the duties of cardinals.


RCIA Bonding Session


by Shaun Chan 

RCIA 2016-2017 team and inquirers held a bonding session in Rumah Kebajikan Good Shepherd, Ulu Klang, on Saturday 26 September 2016. The gathering was a huge success with inquirers and some of their sponsors participating in various events - quizes, coordination activities, creative sketches on God’s creation, dance choreographies and enactments of parables. Many hidden talents were uncovered which is testament to the manifold gifts of God and much love emanated from one another during this period of interaction and fellowship. Participants also took time to check out handicraft and goodies prepared for sale. All who participated thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are looking forward to the next event.     



SIC @ WYD Krakow


by Christiansen Ng

In Poland, the majority of people there are Catholics. From the first day I reached, the people there have been giving me great hospitality, especially my foster family. They gave my friends and I a big warm hug when we first met up in the parish church where we attended our daily masses. They also treated us like their own children, cooking for us great Polish cuisine, and even washing our dirty clothes even when we didn't ask them to. They also brought us around for some sight seeing, took us to some churches and even a theme park for us to play for some time.  


The most unforgettable food I had in my foster family was during the barbecue day. That evening, after we came back from a long hike near the hills, my foster family set up a barbecue pit in the garden where we dined while sitting on the seesaw. We talked, laughed, took photos, enjoyed the food and the moments we had together. I feel very grateful that God has allowed me to experience this event in my life, which will be a special part of my memories. God loves us so much and it is because of Him that all this was possible. In the future I will be as generous as my foster family and open up my house for other pilgrims to stay in and give them good hospitality just as they have given me. Click on wydicon3 for a compilation by World Youth Day (WYD) pilgrims Jonathan Gan, Shamus Siau & Bernard Ow of other recollections and pictures.


Talks on Eucharistic Adoration


Professor Anthony Chan who is a lay leader from the Dallas parish in the United States gave two talks on Eucharistic Adoration at the Costantini Community Centre on Sat 1 Oct. He shared his experiences relating to the Eucharist to the English-speaking community which was attended by 130 parishioners of SIC as well as from other Catholic churches in the Petaling Jaya district. An even bigger crowd of 300 attended his talk in Cantonese to the Mandarin-speaking community. SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong, Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng and Fr Philip Tan (Provincial CDD Malaysia) also attended the talks.   


Ten volunteers (in above photo) who attended the session in English will help kick-start Eucharistic Adoration in SIC and their respective churches. A similar number (in photo below) who attended the session in Cantonese will do likewise.    




Season of Creation


First of September 2016 marked the one-year anniversary of the call by Pope Francis for Catholics to observe the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. All the faithful are invited to join the Pope to pray for the care of creation, united with our Orthodox and Christian sisters and brothers of other denominations who already celebrate this day. Pope Francis has further designated the observance of the Season of Creation for 2016 i.e. between 1 September and 4 October (Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi  patron saint of animals and ecology). St Ignatius Church (SIC) is participating in the Season of Creation this year commencing with offer of prayers on 1 September. Over the next four weeks, specific prayers of the Faithful for Creation shall be offered during Masses.

Incorporating a Season of Creation into our Liturgical Calendar during September is one way to structurally help implement the vision of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ (On Care for Our Common Home). As a pastoral initiative, the four-week long liturgical season would help believers become aware of and address the ecological challenges of the 21st century.
