TUARAN – Regular Massgoers of St John Tuaran received well the Year of Mercy (YoM) message focusing on the Samaritan Woman (Jn 4:1-42) on 23 Mar 2018.
The programme was conducted by members of the Archdiocesan Social Communications Commission with the objective of bringing home the message of God’s mercy and forgiveness to the family.
Father Edward Raymond, the rector, took part in it by proclaiming the gospel text while Father Thomas Madanan, adviser to the commission, summarised the catechesis given by Joseph Leong and Gideon Mosito.
The catechesis took place immediately after the Way of the Cross and Holy Mass. Copies of the YoM leaflets were distributed free to those present before all adjourned outside for a fellowship meal.
The programme started during the Year of Mercy (8 Dec 2015-20 Nov 2016) but since the message is ever relevant the commission decided to continue it as part of their Lenten activities after the Year of Mercy.
