KOTA KINABALU: Members of the Social Communications Commission of the Archdiocese of Kota Kinabalu (SOCCOM ADKK) visited two parishes during Lent to communicate the Gospel message of God’s mercy to the people.

They were at St Pius X Church, Bundu Tuhan, and St Peter’s Church in Kudat on April 5 and April 12, to carry out its Year of Mercy (YoM) programme there.

Fr Thomas Madanan, the Commission’s Spiritual Advisor, who led the Soccom team in conducting the YoM programme, told the gatherings that for Christians, seeking God’s mercy and showing mercy to others is an endeavour of a lifetime.

That was the reason why the Commission had decided to continue with its special YoM programme, despite the fact that the Jubilee Year had ended in November 2016, in order to convey to the people of God at the parish level, “What Mercy Means to Me and My Family”.

This year, the Soccom ADKK members gave the catechesis, based on the Gospel message on Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10).

They also shared their personal witness on the mercy of God in their life.

The speakers invited the parishioners to be reconciled with each other in their respective families by way of forgiveness and other acts of mercy, particularly during the season of Lent.

By way of its special YoM programme, Soccom ADKK continues with its mission to spread the Gospel message not only in writing but by word of mouth as well, personally sharing the good news of the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. -- kkdiocese.net
