Catholic-Buddhist Christmas Do

Two different faiths but the same noble aim of bringing good cheer and glad tidings to the least of our brothers and sisters. Several St Ignatius Church (SIC) parishioners organised a Christmas party for 26 children at the Puchong Service Centre for the Poor (PSCP) on 12 December 2010. Ti-Ratana Penchala Community Centre provided lunch and drinks, whilst presents were donated by SIC parishioners. A few members of SIC's Parish Integral Human Development Ministry (PIHDM) helped to serve lunch and gave away the presents. In the spirit of community & solidarity, the volunteers sat down on the floor to converse and lunch with the children.

Also in attendance for the occasion were Datin Catherine Lai-Lee, the Adviser of Ti-Ratana, and Christians of other denominations. A family member of Ti-Ratana Welfare Society, Ti-Ratana Penchala Community Centre was set up for the betterment of lives in the spirit of compassion to both serve and provide shelter, education and care to the underprivileged members of the community regardless of gender, age, race or creed. PSCP is a privately-run tuition centre supervised by Sr Joan Philip, Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, for needy children comprising Catholics and those of other faiths living in the Puchong Indah neighbourhood. It also runs Klinik Kebajikan which provides twice-weekly free consultation & treatment for the poor with just a nominal fee for medicine. In a small way, the event proved that people of different faiths can come together and cooperate for peace and goodwill.

Appeal: PSCP urgently require the services of a volunteer doctor for its clinic. Please contact Sr Joan @ 016 283 7804 for more details. Donations are also most welcomed.
