BEC St. Anthony Migrant Month

“It’s not just about migrants, it’s also about our fears” was the theme for the month of Sep for BEC St Anthony Gombak. Julia Hting Chyu and her two children, Saviour and Francis, were invited to join the BEC to reflect more personally about migrants in our midst. Julia shared her journey in Malaysia, having […]

Migrant Sunday 29 Sep 2019 – “It is not just about migrants”

Good Shepherd Church Setapak invited the migrants to co-animate the mass on Migrant Sunday this
year. Lydia, 12 years old, from Myanmar did the first reading followed by Emmanuel from Nigeria
who happens to be one of our regular lector as well. Lydia who was a bundle of nerves prior to mass,
read in flawless English and was praised by the liturgical seniors in the parish. She has been invited
to be part of the parish liturgy team once she completes her exams this year.
During Offertory, six couples from the Myanmar migrant community dressed in their traditional
costumes from the different tribes in Kachin state walked up to offer their personal gifts as an act of
thanksgiving for the many blessings and graces they have received during their journey here in
Malaysia. James Seng Naw, a community leader, hope to see a bigger group of migrants from many
different countries coming together for offertory next year.
The celebration was saw the coming together of various ministries in the parish to co-celebrate this
day with our migrant brothers and sisters. The Evergreens gave away 100 cupcakes to the migrant
families as a loving gesture in celebration of the International Day of Older persons who also happen
to fall on the same day as Migrant Sunday this year.
The Catechism children gave away personalised teddy bears to every migrant child who were
present as part of the mission year Teddy Bear project. This was a very meaningful gesture that was
heartwarming and a joy to watch even in the eyes of our Myanmar community leaders.
A video was shown which gave a short account of the history of Myanmar and the complexities
around the different minority groups and the political situation then and now. Many found the video
informative and enlightening.
During the Praise & Worship session, the Malaysians were told to find a migrant partner and spend 5
minutes getting to know one another. Many came up to share what they know about their new
found migrant friends. This provided a beautiful avenue for people of different races to talk and
encounter one another as part of getting to know about a person. Mariam Thomas from GSC,
received a hug from Martha from Myanmar after this short encounter. She thinks that the Praise &
Worship session provide a very good avenue for the migrants to get to know more people in the
parish. She wished to see the migrants fully integrated into parish life and this could be done
through this simple activity of Praise & Worship together.
Songs, praying for peace, rendered by our brothers and sisters from Myanmar joyfully speaks of
their inner desire for peace in their homeland, changing guns into plowshares, for many are missing
their moms and dads back home. Our migrant brothers and sisters sang with their hearts
enthusiastically and enjoyed the Praise & Worship session together with the parishioners of Good
Shepherd very much.
James Seng Naw was pleasantly surprised to see how vibrant the praise and worship session can be
in a catholic church in Kuala Lumpur. Back home, this is not in existence and worship is still very
conservative and traditional.
Julia Thing Chyu was very appreciative of the warm hospitality and kindness shown by the
parishioners of Good Shepherd. She enjoyed the personal chat of getting to know each other with
Nicholas Doshi from the Family Life Ministry. She said that her children liked Malaysia very much and
do not look forward to going home to Myanmar.

The Praise & Worship team extended an open invitation and look forward to meeting our migrant
brothers and sisters again.

The LIGHT OF LIFE retreat 【生命之光】避靜

Choir group and Legion of Mary (Mandarin speaking) 12-14 April 2019 Maranatha Janda Baik Fr Stephen Ng Sharing from our participants: 這是我第一次參與避靜。 那三天兩夜要完全不能說話,不玩手機,不開任何的data上網。一開始有點不習慣。但是,後來慢慢整理自己的情緒,最終還是可以靜下來。 我給自己的挑戰是更多的時間放在祈禱和靈修方面,這三天兩夜,自己也選了特定的時間去小教堂祈禱,特別是早上大概6點多左右天還沒亮的時候。靜靜地,看著聖體櫃祈禱。感覺很平靜很平安是一個很不錯的經驗。         -Joanne     此次避静是自己本堂教友大家都认识,就像一家人在一起般。黄进龙神父也熟悉,教友的团结精神也散发出基督的爱,分享也蛮触动我心。我觉温馨,亲切,没压力,感觉主有与我同在。 我都不敢分享,这次却敢了。往后的教堂活动我都想参与,想与耶稣更靠近。 家人埋怨我太多时间在教堂了,姑姑们反对我浪费时间在念经祈祷 ”妳念酱多经也不见得保佑妳的,依然是酱多病痛酱多事”。我还不懂得如何跟她们解释…受到不理解,我多多少少会有点受影响。虽然我相信主,但不晓得为何依然会问主为什么?会想找答案。也开始明了此路难走。                                  -Faustina     这个避静让我感触甚深。其中一环节神父解释了路加福音中玛利亚和马尔大的互动(路 10: 38-42),表示了在教会团体或善会中事奉的人不单单只是当了马尔大,若我们在事奉的当儿也与耶稣的圣言在一起生活,那我们也当了福音里玛利亚的角色,因为天主的圣言就是身为教友所能得到的最好的一份!   身为教友,如果生活中没有了天主的圣言,那么再多的事奉和服务都是徒劳而空洞无实的!   -Denis
