Extraordinary Year for Mission 2019 Formation Training
Mission Training for Facilitators in Conjunction with the Extraordinary Year for Mission 2019
The Holy Father has designated the month of October 2019 as the Extraordinary Month for Mission in conjunction with the occasion of the centenary of the promulgation of Pope Benedict XV’s Apostolic Letter, Maximum Illud, with the aim of fostering an increased awareness of the missio ad gentes and taking up again with renewed fervour the missionary transformation of the Church’s life and pastoral activity. However, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei has decided to extend the event for a year beginning from the Feast of Epiphany, 6th January 2019 until 27th October 2019.
In conjunction with the Extraordinary Year for Mission, we are inviting THREE representatives from the parish for a special training in Sibu from 28th – 31st January 2019 organized for the dioceses in Sarawak which will be conducted in Bahasa Malaysia. These representatives are to animate the missionary activities in the parish for the whole year. More details regarding this training will be made available soon. For more information, please contact Rev. Fr. Joseph Sebastian, Church of Sts Peter & Paul’s Parish, Mukah.
