Catholic Church to focus on God

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, April 12, 2014

ARCHBISHOP Peter Loy Chong has encouraged members of the Catholic Church to remain focused on God and evangelise with his word.

In celebrating his first Chrism mass as the head of the church, Archbishop Chong reminded Catholics that being involved in church organisations was good.

However, one should not lose sight of the purpose of serving God while being involved in these groups.

Archbishop Chong said the function and the work carried out by groups such as the Blue Army, Charismatic, Marriage Encounter, Catholic Women's League and other groups was good.

But it was important that people remained focused on Jesus who was the author and finisher of our faith.

He also told priests in the Northern Division to keep walking with God.

Archbishop Chong encouraged them not to lose faith even if the situation was too tough to handle because God was forever faithful.
