LIKAS, Sabah: Walai (Kadazandusun word for house) Good Shepherd was blessed on the 83rd canonisation anniversary of Sr Mary Euphrasia, the Foundress of the Religious of the Good Shepherd (RGS).

After the blessing, the Blessed Sacrament was reinstalled in the prayer room.

Archbishop John Wong was the main celebrant at the Mass, with Fr Rhobby Mojolou, Fr Gerald Terence, Fr Cosmas Lee and Fr Arul Mariadass OFM concelebrating.

Also present were the Montfort Brothers, Franciscan Friars, Franciscan Sisters, Daughters of St Paul, Good Shepherd Lay Associates and members of the Global Good Shepherd Services Board of Directors, as well as the RGS Provincial Leader for Singapore- Malaysia, Sr Salomi Cruz, and her councillors.

The visitors were then given a tour inside and around the building. Of note was the bell transported from the RGS former convent at Madonna Heights, Ampang, Kuala Lumpur that was closed in 2022. The bell is now located outside the convent near the main entrance.

The construction of the new convent began at the end of 2018. However, the COVID- 19 pandemic disrupted the construction work from 2020 to 2021.

For the duration of the construction, the Sisters stayed in one of the houses at Taman Kinanty Luyang. -- KK Diocese
