126 Indonesian parishioners from Medan made a goodwill visit to St Francis de Sales Church on July 31. Prior to this, they were in Bukit Mertajam on July 30 for the celebration of St Anne’s feastday.

The group arrived just in time for the Eucharistic celebration in Bahasa Malaysia and English by Fr Vincent Paul.

The members of the troupe were warmly welcomed by the local parishioners.

The church was packed and everyone joined in the singing of the hymns led by the choir from the Tentera Laut Diraja Malaysia (TLDM) Lumut.

At the beginning of the Mass, Fr Vincent welcomed the visitors to Sitiawan and hoped that their visit would be a joyful one.

The visitors presented a traditional dance which led the procession as the gifts of bread and wine were brought to the celebrant.

Before the final hymn, the PPC Chairman Mr Andrew commented on the large group of participants that came to the parish. He thanked them and wished them a pleasant journey back home.

He praised and thanked the Lord and the Holy Spirit for the opportunity for the visitors to come to Sitiawan.

After the final blessing, Fr Vincent invited all for fellowship in the Church hall.
