Our first Outreach and Awareness Programme was to Sacred Heart Church, Peel Road on 5th March 2017. Our next trip was to Christ The Light Chapel, Desa Jaya on Sunday, 28th May 2017. Although the Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Stanislaus Soosaimariam was away, he had already made the necessary arrangements for our visit.
We attended the 10.30 am Mass which was celebrated by Rev. Fr. William Michael. We were given the privilege and opportunity to animate the Mass. Offertory gifts were offered up as a sign of thanksgiving to the Lord by persons with special needs. Eagle’s Wing members shared their experiences and concerns during Mass and at the fellowship at the Community hall.
Sis Jennies, bro Albert, bro Sinbad and some parishioners assisted us. Thank you. We hope that our presence at Christ The Light Chapel will open doors of opportunities for persons with different capabilities to come forward and participate fully in the Eucharistic Celebration and Catechetical programmes.
