Monsignor Francis Kuleh Usat   
Year of birth: 1950
Year of Ordination: (1978) 

NB -The title of monsignor in the Roman Catholic Church signifies a priest who has distinguished himself and has been honored by the Pope for his service to the church. Monsignor is an honorary title, rather than a specific position in the church hierarchy, and does not have any duties distinct from those of any other priest.
Since 2014,Pope Francis, instilling a new sense of humility and simplicity in the Catholic Church, has declared that he is doing away with the designation of "monsignor." From here on , the designation will only be applied to diocesan priests who are "chaplains of the Holy Father," and only after they turn 65 years of age.

"...remember one thing alone: there is a Face, a Face within ourselves, engraved in our heart and which is our only treasure. It is on this Face that our life must converge. It is to this Face that we must go back. It is by hiding ourselves in the light of this Face that we will reach this vast grandeur to which we are called and which is, precisely, through all the sinews of our heart as through all the powers of our soul, to let shine this Face of the eternal Love, for which the whole earth yearns." --Fr Maurice Zundel

From the Bishop's Desk

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.
A personal message from our Bishop, sharing his thoughts and reflections on the word of God together with you on this journey of faith.


Wisma St Joseph is a journey of faith, a prestigious enterprise needing everyone's involvements, both material and spiritual. We the people in Sarawak know the power of "gotong-royong" and what it can accomplish in a short time, with minimum amount of people...read more...
