KOTA KINABALU – The Social Communications Commission (SOCCOM) of the Archdiocese of Kota Kinabalu has adopted a new logo that depicts its role and functions more explicitly.
Archbishop John Wong, who officially unveiled the logo on 2 Dec 2017 at the closing of a two-day advanced journalism training course organised by the Commission, described it as quite impressive and fitting for the present era.
He said it captures the very essence of SOCCOM’s role and functions and has a direct link with the emblem of the archdiocese and with the former emblem of SOCCOM.
“I am happy to see that you have added the images of a chalice and a crucifix that are symbols of our Catholic Faith. Most prominent feature of the new logo is the dove, signifying the presence of the Holy Spirit who guides the entire Church.”
In his address at the launching of the new logo, Archbishop Wong urged members of SOCCOM to be always guided by the power of the Holy Spirit in all their endeavours.
“By yourselves you can do little, but with the power of God, we can truly work wonders.”
In conjunction with the official launching of its new logo, SOCCOM has also produced an information leaflet in English and Bahasa Malaysia that expounds on its role and functions.
Copies of the leaflet shall be distributed to parishes in the archdiocese in an effort to make the role of the Commission better known and understood.
The leaflet would also be used in its effort to promote the establishment of SOCCOM committees at parish level. – Joe Leong
