Recent Activities


(above) Members shared their thoughts & concerns on how human life is seen as a commodity & what steps can be taken to ‘love our neighbour’ on 21 July 2021. This was in line with the theme of the Reflection Paper for July 2021 Prayer Gathering – Open Your Mouth, Defend the Oppressed – and in conjunction with World Day Against Human Trafficking celebrated on 30 July.



(above) BEC members, relatives & friends held an online 7 Day Memorial Prayer for Aunty Sybil Judith De Souza who was called home to the Lord on 7 July 2021. Apart from prayers for Aunty Sybil who was our eldest member, those gathered shared some wonderful memories of her kindness, steadfastness and love for Our Lord. May Aunty Sybil’s soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.




(above) Upon hearing news of the plight of an elderly deaf couple and a single deaf mother with a four-year-old daughter who are short of food, members quickly rallied to help out. Catherine, the mother, and her child Cherry rent a room in the elderly couple’s home in Taman Kinrara, Puchong. Items such as rice, cooking oil, instant noodles, condensed milk, salt, soya sauce, Milo, coffee, sardines, tuna, Nestum, biscuits, eggs, milk powder, cereal, vegetables, onions, bath soap, fresh chicken & fish were brought over within a matter of days. Little Cherry also received an ang pau, after which Uncle and Catherine conveyed their gratitude to members in sign language.

Above outreach is in support of the white flag campaign which is a community initiative to help those in desperate need of food and assistance due to the worsening Covid-19 health and economic situation in the country. Those who are struggling financially are encouraged to reach out for help without fear or shame by displaying a white flag in front of their home as a sign that they need immediate assistance.



(above) At our June Prayer Meet, SIC Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD joined members to discuss the month's Reflection Paper with the theme of Bridging Cultural Boundaries. We shared about how we should tolerate & treat others equally without discrimination in terms of race, religion & language. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues in Malaysia, members also discuss how we can help others in need including contributing to the newly-setup Malaysia Solidarity Fund Against Covid-19 to assist hospitals & healthcare professionals in purchasing more medical equipment.



(above) Sunday 16 May 2021 was our BEC's turn to pray the Rosary as part of the St Ignatius Church month-long Rosary Marathon to pray for the end of the Covid-19 pandemic & healing of those afflicted. Members welcomed Pat Lim & Juliana Tan from BEC DU Holy Family who joined in for the prayers & online fellowship.




(above) Members came together to pray the Rosary and share interesting insights on the secrets of married life and the need for Vitamin R (Rituals of Connection) to face the challenges of today’s families. They were in line with the Rosary month of May, the theme of the Reflection Paper for May 2021 Prayer Gathering – Togetherness in Good Times & Bad – and in conjunction with the International Day of Families celebrated on 15 May. This was followed by our virtual chitchat session which was filled with jokes and laughter.



(above) April Prayer Meet & Easter Gathering. An interesting aspect of this month's Reflection Paper – with the theme of Rise in Hope – was a thought-provoking sharing on identifying the "animals" which control our lives & how we can act to expel them so that we can get closer to God. Members had fun participating in the Easter Egg Hunt & Easter Trivia Quiz where there were prizes up for grabs.



Good Friday 2021 - Prayer outreach with the Catholic Prison Fellowship Association (KL Archdiocesan Prison Ministry). Members lit a candle in prayer and solidarity with those who are experiencing incarceration, awaiting bail and trial in prison, babies and young children living with their mothers in prison and for the families that have loved ones in prison and are facing hardship and hatred.
