KOTA KINABALU – Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish marked its assistant pastor’s priestly anniversary with a simple dinner per request of the honouree on 18 June 2017.

Over 200 people turned up for Father Maxmillianno Hontor’s third priestly anniversary dinner at the parish canteen including members of his family.

It was organised by the social committee of the parish pastoral council.

In his welcoming remarks, Jason Joenoi, PPC chairman, explained that the event was held at the canteen at the request of Fr Max himself.

The occasion was graced by Archbishop John Wong, the other three assistant pastors – Fathers Rhobby Mojolou, Mitchelly Kiun and Joshua Liew – and Msgr Nicholas Ong of Sandakan Diocese.

In his brief speech, Fr Max thanked the organising committee and all those present for commemorating his anniversary.  He asked them to continue praying for him as they journey together as a parish family.

Born in 1977, the honouree was ordained priest on 15 June 2014 in Inanam by Abp Wong.  He is the second priest from Inanam; the first is Fr Patrick Erik Jerome who is serving at St Peter’s College Kuching.  In September this year, another son of Inanam, Deacon Leslie Bingkasan will be ordained a Jesuit priest at St Catherine Inanam.
