31. January, 2016News Comments Off on Commissioning of Faith Sharers at CDM, Penang

On the 10th January, 2016 a total of 29 CEC (Catholic Education Committee) and 20 CLOW (Children’s Liturgy of the Word) members were commissioned at the 9 am morning mass at CDM. The encouraging number of faith sharers was important for the faith development of around 215 children registered for catechism classes. The parish priest, Fr Martin Arlando had repeatedly encouraged members of the parish to join these two ministries especially in this Jubilee Year of Mercy. In doing so, they would be able to fulfill two Spiritual Works of Mercy namely To Instruct the Ignorant and Counsel the Doubtful. He reiterated that in doing so they would also increase their own knowledge of the faith.


As a souvenir, each faith sharer was given a laminated bookmark of the Eight Beatitudes for Catechists and an adapted prayer from A Catechist Prayer both from the words of Sr Marie Roccapriore, MPF. After mass, the first CEC classes for the year commenced.
