KOTA KINABALU: Fr Felix Chung, 82,  has tested positive with COVID-19.

Fr Chung lives at Emmaus Home which is situated within the compound of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.

His last assignment was as rector at St Peter’s College in 2006.

He was also appointed as Chaplain of the Carmelite Monastery until Dec 2012.

Even though he is retired, he is still serving the people. He is always going to the hospitals to give anointing and communion for the sick.

One of the church workers has been exposed to him.

As a precautionary measure, the Cathedral, the parish office, and the cathedral compound is closed to all activities, including individual confessions  for the next two weeks or until they are allowed to reopen again.

In the meantime sanitising works will  be carried out in the compound of Emmaus.

The Holy Hour, the Daily, First Friday, and Sunday Masses at the Cathedral will continue to be streamed live on the Cathedral’s Facebook page and YouTube channel at the usual time.

For those who have obtained tickets for individual confessions, please hold on to them as the parish will inform you of the rescheduling of the dates and times for confessions.

The Church of Mary Immaculate will not be affected and the daily and Sunday Masses will continue as usual.

Please use this time to pray earnestly for God’s protection for Fr Chung and for his speedy recovery, as well as for the well-being of our church workers.
