Walkathon – For A New Cathedral
(9th Sept 2017)

Wisma St Joseph’s – Family Walkathon for a new Cathedral

The Cathedral Parish successfully organised a family walkathon on 9th Sept and raised more than RM700,000 for the new cathedral fund. About 800 participants took apart in the walk, followed by a food fair. During the prize giving for the highest 10 collectors, Bishop Richard Ng expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the organisers, sponsors, participants, and all those who contributed in cash or kind to make the walkathon a resounding success.

The bishop thanked in particular, “The Ironlegs” – a local running club which provided advice, technical support, equipment and route management during the walkathon, including assistance from the Miri Cyclist Club. He hoped that the family walkathon can be an annual affair bringing families together for healthy exercise as well as raising fund for Wisma St Joseph. 

Comments from some of the participating parishioners after the walk:

-    “We should do such family walks more often!”

-    “I never realised that morning air in the Marina Bay area is so fresh because I stayed so far away!...and I will make more efforts to do more morning exercises!”

-     “Aiyoh! Very tired…especially the warm up!”

-    “It is so meaningful – as a Family together - to raise funds, walk together for our new Cathedral”

-    “It is so difficult to ask for donations, really, but it is worth it, especially when we have our new cathedral!”

-    “So many food stalls! So nice food here!”

-    “Very happy! Feel so good!”

From the Bishop's Desk

Our mission is "to build the Lord a house". As the people of God in the Diocese of Miri we are in need of a Cathedral, Pastoral Centre.

That desiring to know what God has to say to you personally is the most important thing in the world. There are many who go through their whole life without ever wishing to know this and so remain ignorant of the things of God and who is God and what would He have them do; to their great detriment. .. read more....
