To facilitate the Parish Mission in our parish this year, two identical workshops were held on Monday 11 January 2016 and Friday 15 January 2016. Father Jacob and Father Simon Pereira conducted both workshops which were meant for volunteers to assist the priests in carrying out the Parish Mission. The volunteers were from the various Ministries as well as from other parishes. The workshop on 15 January was meant for those who reside outside the boundary of the Church of the Risen Christ.

Father Jacob Ong explained the purpose of the Parish Mission, its biblical foundation and its significance in this Year of Mercy especially for the Church of the Risen Christ where it is now being conducted. Both Fathers were glad to receive the positive response of the volunteers and thanked them. The main administrative tasks were explained and allocated accordingly.

The volunteers are scheduled to carry out their visits to the registered homes in February and March with a view to prepare for the subsequent visits by the priests to the same homes after our parish feast day.
