Some local news

From The Star

Holy day: Bishop Antony cutting a cake to commemorate the celebration. With him are Holy Communion and Confirmation candidates.
THE parishioners of St Michael’s Church in Alor Star had three reasons to celebrate recently.

They celebrated the feast of St Michael the Archangel, Holy Communion as well as Confirmation. Preparation for the parish feast day began with novenas and masses for nine days.

Parish priest Father Jude Miranda said the novenas had a theme for each day – family, vocations, area groups, married couples, youth, peace, the sick, priesthood, country and community.

They were preached by eight invited priests.

A total of 24 candidates from churches in the northern region received Holy Communion and Confirmation.

Bishop Antony Selvanayagam, together with Father Francis Xavier from Nibong Tebal, Father Fredrick Joseph (Chapel of Kristus Cahaya), Father Mitchel Anthony (Jesus Caritas) and Father Jude, celebrated the Feast Day Mass.
