KUCHING — After a long wait, a small group of 16 students from Blessed Sacrament Church were finally able to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at a special 4.00pm Mass on Sunday 18 October. It was celebrated by Fr Nicholas Ng and concelebrated by Parish Rector, Fr Patrick Heng.
Under the current COVID-19 pandemic, Fr Nicholas Ng had been granted the faculty to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation by Archbishop Simon Poh, the Ordinary Minister of Confirmation.
In conforming to the SOP for churches enforced by the Government authorities, only about 80 people were able to attend the Mass of the confirmands. Only family members and godparents were given permission to attend the celebration, organised by the Bible and Faith Formation Committee (BFFC) Sunday School Chinese session.
