30th Anniversary Family Carnival

From the moment St Ignatius Church (SIC) Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD launched festivities at 9 am up to the lucky draw with an LED TV as the grand prize just after 3 pm, a continuous stream of parishioners, family members and friends moved in and out of the covered car park of the church. Packed with stalls selling various food & drinks, games, arts & craft, handicraft, books (Daughters of St Paul) and even one selling vegetables, this was the venue of the SIC Family Carnival on Saturday 17 November 2018. The event was held in conjunction with the 30th anniversary celebration of SIC.

There were song and dance as well as cultural items presented by the English, Mandarin, Tamil and Bahasa Malaysia communities. Performances on stage included a display of Chinese martial arts, songs by SIC children's choir, a drama skit & dances by a group of Myanmese children under the auspices of the PIHD Migrants Group. Particularly popular with young children were an inflatable castle and arts & craft stalls while the older children, youths and not-so-old adults tried to overcome challenges at the games stalls. There were also horse & pony and super-bike rides for all ages and a cosplay competition involving biblical characters. Adding their wit and charm as Masters of Ceremony for the carnival were radio personalities Elspeth Dines and Phat Fabes.

Much laughter and ribbing can be heard at one of the games stall where Fr Andrew, Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD, Br Joseph Lim CDD and other parishioners sportingly volunteered to be dunked into water – for a price and only if challengers are able to hit the target. Towards the end of the event, Frs Andrew & Lawrence and the organising committee cut a cake commemorating this significant milestone in SIC history. Fr Andrew then thanked the organising committee, ministries & BECs and all who helped make the event a success. A beehive of activity for some six hours, the carnival aptly encapsulates SIC as a close-knit yet welcoming community working towards its parish pastoral theme for 2018-2019 – For the Greater Glory of God.
