The Parish Integral Human Development (P.I.H.D) Ministry of the Cathedral of St John the Evangelist hosted the annual Christmas party for 161 children of the migrant community and 18 children from the adoptee families on Saturday 11th January 2020 at the Community Centre of the cathedral.
The kids from the migrant community were represented by the Refugee Catholic Association, Children’s Training Centre, Kachin Refugee Learning Centre (Bukit Bintang), Kachin Refugee Learning Centre (Setapak) and Zomi Catholic Community Centre.
Children between the ages of 6 and 15 years old were treated to a day of fun, food, games, and gifts. The children were also presented with a children’s storybook titled ‘Brotino The Legendary Crab’ written and donated by 11-year old Phoebe Li-Yen Yong, a parishioner of the Cathedral of St John the Evangelist.
Blessed with good weather and help of volunteers from the BEC’s and Youth from the St John’s Youth Ministry, the party ran smoothly and was a huge success. His Grace Archbishop Julian and parish priests, Msgr. Leonard and Fr. Biju were also present to lend their support.
The party which started at 8.30am ended at 2.30pm.
