Big Turnout for Bible Timeline Scripture Study

bt2017a

A hundred and five participants have registered for The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation module which started at 8 pm on Monday 13 February in Room 2-6 of the Costantini Community Centre. This 24 session module is being facilitated by 24 members of the SIC Scripture Study (SSS) group. Joining the attendees for the first session was St Ignatius Church (SIC) Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng who sat through the praise & worship, enthronement & video presentation. Despite Monday being his off-day, Fr Lawrence enthusiastically joined one of the eight groups for faith & knowledge sharing which ended just after 10 pm.

Earlier on when Fr Lawrence addressed the attendees, he advised that Bible studies should be done gradually and continually – akin to taking small bites each time, every day, to digest. SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong dropped by at around 9.45 pm to greet participants and facilitators alike at their respective groups. This module is a new presentation by Bible scholar Jeff Cavins of the module of the same name conducted by SSS in 2011 & 2013. A study set with questions & answers, a bookmark and a newly-designed Bible Timeline Chart illustrating the major events, people and places of salvation history are used to augment learning. Also present at the opening session was Catechetical Ministry Coordinator Francis Jong.

A new and bigger statue of Mother Mary at the Grotto was unveiled and blessed by St Ignatius Church (SIC) Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong, CDD after the 6 pm Sunset Mass on Saturday 11 February 2017. Also celebrated today is the optional Memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes which marks the first apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1858 to 14-year-old Bernadette Soubirous – the firstborn daughter of a miller from Lourdes, France. "I am the Immaculate Conception" was the revelation to Bernadette who in a trance had asked Our Lady repeatedly as to her identity. Canonised by Pope Pius XI in 1933, St Bernadette is the patroness of illness, people ridiculed for their piety, poverty, shepherds, shepherdesses, and Lourdes. A small statue of St Bernadette at the Grotto was also installed and blessed. Fr Andrew hopes that more parishioners will pray at the Grotto which now has 10 new concrete benches for seating at least 20 persons comfortably.

World Day for Consecrated Life 2017

wdofconsecrated2017a

During the General Audience on 1 February 2017, His Holiness Pope Francis asked Catholics to pray for all those in religious and consecrated life, those who have been called to profess the evangelical counsels. With this appeal very much in mind, some 300 Catholics from various churches attended a special Mass to celebrate the World Day for Consecrated Life at St Ignatius Church (SIC) on Thursday 9 February starting at 6 pm. They came to pray for and to be in solidarity with about 70 priests, nuns and religious brothers from 10 religious communities who were present.

Celebrated in English and Bahasa, the Mass followed the liturgy for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord with His Grace Archbishop Julian Leow as the main celebrant. His Eminence Cardinal Soter Fernandez, His Grace Achhbishop Joseph Marino (Apostolic Nuncio to Malaysia), His Grace Archbishop Emeritus Murphy Pakiam and SIC Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng, CDD were the conclebrants. In his homily, Archbishop Julian said on this day, the religious are celebrating the vows they took. He reminded that religious life is a calling, not a career; a way of life, not a job; an identity and not just a role they play. The lives of the religious – their witness & example – puts flesh to all that they preach. After Mass, the religious gathered together for a fellowship dinner.

Physical Enhancements in SIC

physical1

Today (7 Feb 2017) marks the 220th day that Fr Andrew Wong, CDD and Fr Lawrence Ng, CDD has been shepherding St Ignatius Church (SIC) as parish priests. In this relatively short space of time, many enhancements & changes in many forms have been implemented throughout the biggest church in Petaling Jaya (in terms of the number of parishioners). In the area of physical enhancements, some are obvious to the naked eye but some are not. Perhaps the most obvious – especially at night – are the lighted letterings of the SIC name which are now a floor higher and complements the Welcoming Christ statue. Similarly, the letterings have also been shifted higher at the other end of the Costantini Community Centre facing Paradigm Mall.

These initiatives will provide motorists and pedestrians travelling along LDP & surrounding roads and LRT passengers greater awareness of the location of SIC. A metal plate listing the timings of Masses, Novenas, Holy Hour and Sacred Heart Devotion has been put up at the main entrance gate. Within the church, there are now two confessionals at the right wing instead of one, two new LED projectors and another LED TV screening Mass proceedings have been installed. Free wifi (sic30) is now available in most parts of the church compound except the most remote areas. The pigeon hole rack for letters has been shifted across next to where the Communion Ministers & Lectors room is located. New wardrobes to store lectors' vestments have been installed in this room.

Five hundred new plastic chairs have been added as well as 10 concrete benches seating at least 20 parishioners at the Grotto. New wallpaper now adorn the funeral parlour and Michelangelo's famous masterpiece Pieta hangs on the Rooftop wall at the new lift landing at Costantini Community Centre. A new traffic system has been implemented to ease the entry and exit of vehicles into and out of the church compound. This entails marking the roads – which are newly resurfaced – as well as putting up signages at strategic locations. Priests, staff and volunteers have and will work hard to continually improve the church in all aspects. It is up to each and every parishioner to make full use of our new facilities and cooperate with each other as a Worshipping, Welcoming & Caring Community.
