文良港善牧堂位于热水湖(Ayer Panas)的住宅区内,除了文良港本身,所牧养的区域还包括鹅唛,旺沙玛珠,南北花园,Melawati。1964年由当时的主教Tan Sri D.Vendardon主持开幕并正式启用。圣堂的建筑设计在当年可说新颖,时尚;它独特的屋顶好似旧约中约柜的样式,祭台的位置让参加圣祭的教友环绕四周,都能清楚看见主礼,且更有参与感。 善牧堂历年来的牧者计有Fr John Wang(1971-1983), Fr Simon Tang & Fr Eugene( -1991), Fr Antoine Henriot( -2004), Fr Patrick Boudville( -2011), Fr VA Michael( -2014)以及现任的Fr Christopher w Soosaipillai。这群牧者/神师无不尽心尽力牧养我们的堂区,从硬体到软体,教友的人数到信仰的成长,在这五十几年有显著的发展。硬体方面,在本堂自家的画家的努力下,圣堂和小圣堂有着独特的艺术气息;信友团体方面,本来三种语言的弥撒,近五年加入了国语组,吸引了尤其是附近军营驻扎的原住民家庭,使堂区更多元更热络。 本堂教友致力在全人发展的事工上,活跃于街头派食,监狱牧灵,关心原住民/贫穷/弱势团体。我们华文组除了本堂的事工,也投入教区的福传,推动启发课程(Alpha)。近十年来的华文促进会主席有赵清福,王永城,丁祖义,黄启升兄弟以及新上任的巫靖璇姐妹。目前活跃的善会分别是—基信团(文良港,鹅唛,旺沙玛珠,Melawati),主日学(学生班/家长班-糖水小站),慕道班,圣经班(包括《门徒班》和《小磐石》),祈祷会(包括《圣神同祷会》),圣母军,学生青年运动等等。 现任总主教廖炳坚上任时委派本堂神父为教区‘推动圣召Vocation的召集人’,神父也带动本堂教友上下一心,鼓励响应圣召,培养教会的领袖和牧者,以不辜负‘善牧堂’的名号,也不辜负那位真正的善牧。 ‘我是善牧,善牧为羊舍掉自己的性命’(若10:11) 主日中文弥撒时间 1050-1150
