PAPAR – Kota Kinabalu Archdiocese hosted the Malaysian Catholic Youth Ministers Committee (MCYMC) Campus Ministry Meeting on 23-25 Sept 2016 at Pace Bene FSIC Retreat Centre here.
Sixteen students and 23 youth ministers from seven dioceses (except for Sibu and Miri) in Malaysia participated in the meeting.
Father Joshua Liew presided at the Opening Mass. In his homily, he encouraged everyone to be rooted in Christ in everything they do and to let Christ “steer” them throughout the meeting.
The meeting was a platform for the students to meet and share challenges and struggles at national level. They also spent time evaluating the national-level event, Malaysia Catholic Campus Students’ Day (MCCSD) held on 14-20 July 2015 in Kuching Sarawak.
They discussed what needed to be improved and inserted in the next MCCSD, including the four elements; Prayer, Scripture, Mass, and Mission. They proposed the next MCCSD to be held during the Hari Raya holidays 2017.
The Campus Ministry Meeting finalised several issues which would be brought up during the MCYMC Meeting in Bundu Tuhan on Sept 25-29. Father Simon Anand from Penang diocese concluded the meeting with a Mass. – Sheerah Yangus, KK AYPT
