Good Shepherd’s Parish Ministry of Ecumenical and Inter Religious Affairs (PMEIA) recently invited 10 Christian Churches around the Setapak vicinity for an evening of prayer and fellowship. His Grace, Archbishop Julian Leow and Rev Fr Christopher Wilvaraj together with the PMEIA members greeted and welcomed the Pastors and members of the other Christian Churches to the Good Shepherd Church (GSC), Setapak.
"A parish is a definite community of the Christian faithful established on a stable basis within a particular church; the pastoral care of the parish is entrusted to a pastor as its own shepherd under the authority of the diocesan bishop" (Canon 515).
The above code from the Canon simply means that the Parish priest, the religious of the parish and its congregation form the parish. Therefore, a parish is formed by God’s people whose pastoral care becomes the responsibility of the parish priest who encourages all to continue Christ’s mission here in the world.
