Every year, the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) inquirers of the Church of St Ignatius (SIC) have a chance to participate in an outreach programme to the St Francis Xavier Home for the Elderly. The Home is under the care of the Little Sisters of the Poor located at Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.

Twenty-twenty indeed is challenging for this outreach due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although it is difficult for us this year, the Conditional Movement Control  Order (CMCO) did not stop the inquirers spreading their love and care to the needy. Through the love and grace of Jesus, the inquirers, facilitators and previous years’ members raised sufficient funds to purchase the provisions. Contributions from some corporations also came in with supplementary supplies.

On Monday Nov 9, in compliance with the CMCO SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures), despite all challenges, a representative from the RCIA inquirers with two  RCIA facilitators delivered the provisions to the Home. The goods purchased were piled up in the Home’s pantry room.

Later, a cheque from the collection was presented to the Home. Sr Lucy was present to welcome the visitors and delivery. She also thanked all the donors and contributors in a recorded video.

Although the inquirers did not get a chance to visit and view the Home, Sr Lucy in her message welcomed all the inquirers to join in a fellowship with the residents in the Home, as soon as the pandemic is over. The inquirers have brought to the Home Jesus’ compassion, love, care and kindness.
