Parishioners bid farewell to Fr Chin

Oct 05, 2018

ARAU, Perlis: The humble Chapel of the Holy Cross celebrated the feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross, its patronal feast, on Friday, September 14, 2018 at a special Mass at 6.30pm.

The Mass was celebrated by Fr Charles Chin with many parishioners and worshippers participating.

In his homily, Fr Chin, who shared from Mark’s Gospel (24th Sunday of Ordinary Time), reiterated that Jesus is not a political Messiah. He is a Messiah, the Lamb of God who sacrifices Himself so that our sins can be forgiven.

The Mass was celebrated in Bahasa Malaysia and Tamil.

After Mass, the Chapel’s Committee leader gave a speech thanking all for their presence. He also commended Fr Chin, who has served the community for the past couple of years.

It was also a farewell to Fr Chin, who is retiring soon as the Chapel’s Administrator. A cake was wheeled to the front for Fr Chin to cut and a token of appreciation was also given to him.

All were feted to a dinner fellowship after the Mass, held at the canteen area behind the Chapel. — By Bernard Anthony
