KUCHING — The installation of the new rector for Holy Trinity Church was held during the Sunday First Mass on 9 February. It was celebrated by Kuching Archbishop Simon Poh and concelebrated by both Fr Patrick Heng and the newly installed Rector, Fr Joseph Liew.
The ceremony included Fr Joseph’s pledge of his continuous service to the people of God, and the official handing over of responsibilities from Fr Patrick.
In his farewell address, Fr Patrick thanked all the parishioners for their support, encouragement, love and care throughout his seven years’ service as Rector of Holy Trinity Church.
His appreciation also went to the Parish Pastoral Council, past and present members, for their dedication and commitment towards making projects organised for the community such great success, and his hope that they would give the same support to the new rector and continuous commitment to Christ.
Fr Patrick also expressed his utmost gratitude to parishioners who took care of him in one way or another when he was undergoing medical treatments.
As the newly installed Rector, Fr Joseph thanked Fr Patrick for his years of service and improvements made to the church and promised that he would do his best to continue to humbly serve the community.
We welcome Fr Joseph Liew to Holy Trinity Church and thank him for accepting the responsibilities as our new parish rector.
