In conjunction with St Catherine’s parish day and Archbishop John Wong’s pastoral visit to the parish, 99 candidates were conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation on April 24.

Through the anointing with sacred chrism, the candidates are “enriched with the special strength of the Holy Spirit”, and more than ever, “obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed” (CCC 1285).

The rites were performed with strict adherence to the prevailing SOP. The archbishop was assisted by parish priest, Fr David Sham.

The candidates had successfully completed the two-year preparation despite the pandemic.

Archbishop Wong also spent 40 minutes in fruitful dialogue with members of the Pastoral Council before joining the fellowship and witnessing the thanksgiving concert presented by the confirmands and the youths of St Catherine Church. --Catholic Sabah
