KUCHING – St Joseph’s Cathedral Parish ended its 4th Alpha Course with a celebration dinner at a local restaurant on 12 June.
A total of 92 parishioners participated. The 15-session Alpha Course took 12 weeks, held on each Tuesday evening in the Parish centre with Nicky Gumbel’s DVD talk followed by small group sharing and discussion based on the talk. The weekend away at the Catholic Memorial and Pilgrimage Centre (CMPC) was very enriching and participants experienced the Holy Spirit who delivered, healed and restored.
Over the three months the whole Alpha programme was supported by intercessory prayers.
The Administrator of the Parish Alpha Programme, Johnny Kon, called upon the participants to act positively after the course and to join a lay organisation at the Parish to ensure individual spiritual growth.
In his closing speech, Fr Joseph Chai, Spiritual Director of the Parish Alpha Programme, challenged the participants to respond more actively in the Church.
