The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Malaysia has endorsed the decision to be part of the Caritas family under Caritas Asia. As the overarching body for all organisations involved in charity and human development in the Malaysian dioceses, Caritas Malaysia was set up on January 10, 2020.
All the parish ministries in the Diocese of Penang involved in social mission will now be consolidated under the same umbrella of Caritas as one big social arm of the Catholic Church.
Representing the Diocese of Penang are Fr Joachim Robert and Ms Juanita Chin.
2021 Lenten Campaign
Theme: Ignite Hope
The Lenten Campaign is a faith-based programme of the Catholic Church aimed at actively encouraging the faithful to be fully immersed in the three key practices of prayer (Mt. 6:6), fasting (Mt. 6:17) and almsgiving (Mt. 6:2) during the annual observance of Lent. The desired result of these focused practices and efforts is the renewal and transformation, as promoted by Romans 12:2.
The vision of the Lenten Campaign is to have a Catholic community who is active and responsible cooperators of the Kingdom of God, while the mission of the Campaign is to actively and appropriately promote the spiritual observance of Lent through conscientious decisions and contemporary actions that result in the renewal and transformation of the vocation of the individual Catholic and the Catholic community.
"If you deprive yourself for the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, your light will rise in the darkness, and your darkest hour will be like noon."
