St.Peter and Paul's Day


Offertory procession

St.Peter and St. Paul's Day


Kudat Celebrates St. Peter's and St. Paul's Day

 The Catholic Church commemorates the feast of St. Peter and Paul , June 29 every year. But due to the absence of our Parish Priest that day, the celebrations  in Kudat Parish  was postponed to 6th July , the following Sunday.

Attended also by faithful from the Taipa and Tajau outstations, it started with a Holy Mass celebration at 8.30 am presided by the parish priest, Fr. Tobias Chi.

 Dancers , dressed in white ,  preceded the entrance hymn procession  to a singing church .  

In his homily , Fr. Tobias Chi  said that Kudat parish consists  of the three churches, St. Peter's Parish , Kudat , Our Lady Immaculate, Taipa and Sacred Heart's Church, Tajau ,  one secondary school , four  Primary schools ; all bearing the patron saint's name . Besides, there are also the rectory , the convent , teachers'  quarters and Rev. Fr.de  Wit's Memorial Hall in St. Peter's Taman .

The priest  continued to draw a clear picture of the life of our patron saint , St. Peter , as the head of the apostles, the speaker of the group , the one who denied Christ three times but regretted it and did repentance  by spreading the faith throughout the non-Jewish world of that time . St. Paul is another such character who turned out to be a great supporter of Christianity.

 Judas ,  who committed the grievous sin of the betrayal of Christ , did not take the time to repent but to escape by committing suicide .Thus , he could not be saved.

 From these  examples , Father  stressed the importance of repentance or turn over a new leaf,  should we sin; for as humans , we are weak.

 There was a colourful and meaningful offertory  procession of   representatives from the three churches, all the bodies of St. Peter's Church , bearing gifts and offerings to the smiling  priest .

After the Holy Mass ,  the faithful proceeded to the Hall for a tea reception .Then Fr. Chi , together with  the parish council members cut the cake for  fellowship sharing . After that , they witnessed the  prize-giving ceremony to children who took part in the colouring and drawing competitions , held  the previous Sunday. There was a slide show of the history of the church and the activities carried out as an incentive  to further more casting of  our nets to the deep. There was also a lucky draw , to give away hampers to the lucky  ones.

All the faithful present were invited to a buffet  lunch to mark the close of the celebration .
