PAPAR – St Joseph Parish Women’s Day celebration on 10 Mar 2018 received an unexpected large turnout at the Mother of Mercy open hall.
Father Rayner Bisius led the opening prayer followed by the cake-cutting with members of the Catholic Women’s League headed by Rosalind Lohindun, Franciscan Sister Juanah Saliun and the novices, and some of the women parishioners.
In his address based on the theme Press for progress, move forward in Christ, Fr Rayner stressed the need for faith in Christ in order to move into the uncertain future, just like Abraham’s faith in God.
During the fellowship dinner, the attendees enjoyed the stage presentations by the various groups both local and outstation.
The event ended with a closing prayer by Sr Juanah.– William Charles Mindus (SOCCOM Papar)
