TEBEDU – The new Holy Cross Church Project under the sub-parish of Tebedu was launched by Msgr William Sabang and Bunan Gega Parish Priest, Fr Jerome Juleng, on 1 January. A large number of parishioners attended the function held at the Dewan Masyarakat Tebedu.
The launching ceremony began with a welcoming address by Robert Jawas, Chairman of the Tebedu Sub-Parish Council. He exhorted all to continue to work together to achieve their goal of collecting RM 1.5 million for the church to be built in Bandar Mutiara, Tebedu.
Msgr William Sabang, representing Archbishop John Ha, congratulated the people of the Bunan-Tebedu Parish for their efforts on the project since 2007. In this Year of the Family of Hope (2008), he reminded them not to build on sand, but on the rock of Jesus, our Hope.
Msgr William later cut a ribbon to symbolically launch the project. He also distributed a copy of the Project booklet and collection form to each tua kampong (village head) of the sub-parish.
The Tebedu sub-parish falls under St Jude’s Parish, Bunan Gega.
