MEMBAKUT – Pauline Sister Laura Anggie conducted two Media Literacy Education (MLE) sessions in the Diocese of Keningau recently.
The first session was held at St Patrick Membakut on 26 Aug 2017 on Church and Social Communication.
Membakut is a town about 80 km from the State capital of Kota Kinabalu.
Over a hundred people – young and old – attended the session organised by the Keningau Diocesan Social Communications Commission (KOMSOS).
The participants were divided into two groups – adults and children – for group sharing and discussion.
The next day Sr Laura left for St Peter Bundu Kuala Penyu for another session on Aug 28.
Kuala Penyu is about 20-minute drive from Membakut and is noted for its beautiful beaches.
Over 1000 young people including spiritual advisers took part in the diocesan camp for altar servers (boys and girls) from the nine parishes and one mission under the Keningau Diocese. However, some of the participants came from Sandakan Diocese and from Limbahau Parish (Kota Kinabalu Archdiocese).
Sr Laura’s session dealt with how social media influence anti-social behaviour in the family.
