The programme started with a welcoming note and an ice breaker 'dance' lead by some the youths from Y2Y of Seremban.
Followed by the enthronement of the Bible by Orang Asli community and song "All Are Welcome" in four languages.
Then a keynote address was given by our parish priest Fr. George Pakiasamy. He emphasise on this year's theme, "The Bible: A Guide for Our Steps, a Light of the Word" has helped us all to deepen our discipleship and grow in our spirituality. He is happy to see many new faces coming forward to offer their services whole-heartily in the BECs and various
ministries. It's a sign of our sense of belonging to the church and the Word of God has helped us all to get involved in the life of the Church. Next year the parish will be moving one step up the 2nd stage of the New Image of Parish (NIP) in it's 5th year. The focus would be on "CHRIST's TEACHING, OUR LIGHT"
The PPC has full confidence in that we will be faithful to the teaching of Christ and allow His teaching to guide us in our living, in our prayers, to walk in His light and also to bring light into our homes and hearts. Fr. George ended with a phrase from the Bible which Jesus said in John 13:34 "And now I give you a new commandment: Love one another just as I have loved you. It is by your love for one another, that everyone will recognise you as my disciples".
