主徒會八打靈聖依納爵堂建堂35週年慶

(八打靈18日訊)主徒會馬來西亞會省八打靈聖依納爵堂慶祝建堂35週年慶。由吉隆坡總教區大家長廖總主教主禮感恩彌撒,主徒會的神父們共祭。總主教特別感謝主徒會在教區的服務與貢獻。他也提醒教友們要愛護堂區,因為堂區也是大家的家庭。

 

“建設需要很長的時間和精神,但毀滅卻可以一瞬之間的事情。”總主教說到。

 

總主教在這之前的總教區神職人員退省中也指出世界的和平沒有進步的現象,但卻有很大的退步。所以,維護和平是基督徒的使命之一,因為天主把照管世界的使命賦予了人類。因此,基督徒應成為世界的光和地上的鹽,以見證去影響世界變成更和平。

 

35年的堂區絕對說明了她的存在意義。如今堂區的教友進入老化現象,年輕人數逐漸減少,這也提醒教友們需要記得和履行信仰的誓願,愛天主在萬有之上。(文/王安當)

 

 

(18th October, Kuala Lumpur) The Congregation of the Disciples of the Lord (CDD) in the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, celebrated the 35th anniversary of the construction of the St. Ignatius Church. Archbishop Leow presided over a thanksgiving Mass, joined by the priests of CDD. Archbishop Leow expressed gratitude for the service and contributions of CDD Fathers in the archdiocese. He also reminded the parishioners to cherish the parish, as it is a home for everyone.

 

“Construction takes a long time and effort, but destruction can happen in an instant,” remarked Archbishop Leow.

 

During a retreat with the clergy of the archdiocese before this event, Archbishop Leow highlighted the lack of progress in global peace and noted significant setbacks. He emphasized that maintaining peace is one of the missions of Christians, as God has entrusted humanity with the responsibility of caring for the world. Therefore, Christians should be the light of the world and the salt of the earth, witnessing to influence the world towards greater peace.

 

The 35 years of the parish’s existence clearly illustrate its significance. With the aging of the parishioners and a decline in the number of young people, the community is reminded to remember and fulfill the vows of faith, loving God above all else.
