PNG - Greetings from MSC Centre 2Mile

posted Feb 6, 2014, 7:27 PM by MSC Mission Office Australia

Greetings from MSC Centre 2Mile. Hope things are fine as we begin another year. 

Just a brief news about what happened in the province in the first month of this year . We had three deacons ordained on 18th January. Robert Timi and Otto Kikilia were ordained at Vunapope by Archbishop Francesco Panfillo SDB. Hilary Kapei is our first Madang MSC priest and Archbishop Steve Reichart, Archbishop of Madang willingly accepted our invitation to ordain him.

Thanks for the Mass Kits you sent. Three Mass Kits of the five you sent were given to the three newly ordained priests, and were encouraged to use them in administering the sacraments to the people whilst saying the Holy Mass.  At present we have another five deacons on pastoral and we really appreciate your continuous support to our young confreres. Such assistance really motivates and challenges them to take their MSC religious life and priesthood seriously.

Sometimes back, MSC Mission Office produced a prayer booklet called, "Prayers and Spiritual Readings - I thirst." Our lay people, some of which are members of our Chevalier lay associates came asking if we have any in stock but alas! we have nothing. Since it is of demand here, we are kindly requesting MSC Mission Office to provide us a carton to distribute to our lay people who wants to read and know the essence of our spirituality and charism and how we confront the needs of the Church in our time. Most of this people are very faithful, genuine and generous Christians who  continually support the work of the Church in both prayer and deed. Yet we owe them their request and once again asking your assistance with the books.

Hope to hearing from your very soon with consideration to our humble request.

Yours in the Heart of Christ!
