WAM – Lenten Pilgrimage
The Working Adults Meetup (WAM) by CHOICE Kuching (Working Adults Ministry) & EMPOWERED Ministry (St Joseph’s Cathedral, Parish Youth Ministry) went on a Lenten pilgrimage to the Catholic Memorial Pilgrimage Centre (CMPC) at Mount Singai, Bau on 18th March.
A group of 20 pilgrims set off on their journey up the mountain at 8am with Stations of the Cross, where the pilgrims took turns to lead as they reflected on the scripture passage of Jesus’ passion at each station.
At 10am, the pilgrims attended Holy Mass presided by Fr Nicholas Ng, together with 90 students and teachers of St Joseph’s Chinese Sunday School, followed by fellowship over lunch. After being spiritually nourished and well fed, the pilgrims made their way down and headed back home.
The pilgrims shared that it was a simple but wonderful experience with self-reflection. They were reminded that they are sinners and the need to seek repentance from God. During the climb, they reflected that life is full of struggles but God is with us and gives us the strength face life’s challenges.
WAM is a newly formed Working Adults Group which aims to gather those ages 20 and above – especially youths who have transitioned from teen-hood into young adulthood and working adults, for a time of formation and fellowship, in hope that this will provide an avenue for training, skills and support for the attendees maturing into adulthood.
The next WAM Gathering is scheduled for Friday 11th May followed by 8th June, 8PM – 10PM at St Joseph’s Cathedral Parish Centre. All (young) working adults are welcome.
