KOTA KINABALU – The sick were not forgotten in the weeklong observance (June 19-25) of the Sacred Heart Cathedral parish fiesta here.
The parish organised a Mass for them on 23 June 2017, Solemnity of the Sacred Heart.
Almost 500 parishioners turned up for the celebration presided by Archbishop John Wong, concelebrated with his four assistants Fathers Rhobby Mojolou, Mitchelly Kiun, Maxmillianno Hontor and Joshua Liew.
In his homily based on the liturgical readings, Abp Wong reiterated the invitation extended to all to rest in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The anointing of the sick by the concelebrants took place immediately after the Mass. This was followed by refreshments at the parish centre prepared by the Women’s League.
The parish organises the Mass for the Sick twice a year: on February 11 – Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes/World Day of Prayer for the Sick – and on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart (movable feast).
