NABAWAN – The new Suanal chapel dedicated to St Philip the Apostle here was blessed by Father Rudolf Joannes on 2 Feb 2018.
It was part of his three-day-two-night pastoral visit to the outstation community at Kg Suanal together with the Outreach Team, Holy Trinity Missionaries, Franciscan Sister Sandra Yapp, YB Datuk Ellron A Angin and his entourage.
The construction of the chapel began in August 2017 and completed in January this year through the cooperation of all the community members, the material help from Angin, Harry Ryech and KSFX parish.
Liturgical furnishing was donated by the Outreach Team, Franciscan Sisters, St Bede Nabawan BEC, Borneo Service and other individual donors.
Kg Suanal is around 6-hour ride from Keningau. The visitors were welcomed by Justin T Ondol chairman of the Suanal BEC and 50 other BEC members.
After Mass, all adjourned for the fellowship meal below the chapel. – keningau website
