ACLAC 华文教务促进会

It was a very tiring but joyful weekend.

I have attended the 15th Anniversary and General Meeting of the Kuala Lumpur Archdiocesan Chinese Language Apostolate Commission (ACLAC), from 8:00 am Saturday to 3:30 pm Sunday, 7-6-2008, and its election of new Committee (2008-2010).

I have very little sleep because busy chatting with delegates and friends till the early hours of the morning.

I was there assisting Sr. Theresa Chew for the spiritual input sessions on the first day of the meeting. We talked about the Gospel teaching of Christ, the spirituality and service of the leaders and looking at the role and position of ACLAC in the local church in the context of evangelisation and community building.

Sr. Theresa also highlighted the importance of functional structure, Word-based spirituality and defined work for the continue existence of the Apostolate. She stressed that ACLAC must response vigorously to the challenges in the implementation and to ensure the success of achieving the goal of the six core needs of the Peninsular Church adopted in the PMPC III.

The new Committee members elected are (see picture) :
Chairman : Kevin Chung (seated 5th from right)
V-Chairman: Vincent Lim (seated 7th from right)
Secretary : Edwin Moo (seated 8th from right)
Treasurer : Lucus Tan (blue shirt, back of Kevin)

May the Spirit guides and protects them in their new undertakings.


刚过去的周末,是非常疲惫但欢欣的。

我参加了六月七日(星期六)早上八时至六月八日(星期日),下午三时结束的吉隆坡总教区,华文教务促进会 (ACLAC) 欢庆成立十五周年,及常年大会和理事(2008-2009)会改选。

很高兴的看到了很多旧相识,也遇见了很多的新代表,所以在当天活动结束后,大家坐下来聊天,谈到凌晨才睡觉(好像都没有睡到)。所以我是很疲倦了。在回到家里后,马上倒在床上“补睡”一小时。

我是陪同周丽娜修女在大会的第一天里,给参与的领袖们一些灵修的灌输。我们讲解了耶稣的教导,福音的精神,领袖的灵修的重要,也反省了众领袖们,连同华文教务促进会目前在本地教会扮演的角色,特别是在福传及建设团体方面。

周秀女也强调一个坚强的体制,团体灵修及工作,对促进会是非常重要的。促进会也必须对西马半岛牧灵大会所提出的六个主要优先领域的挑战,特别是在协调推动及达到目标方面,作出积极的回应。

大会选出了新届理事四位主要职员如下 (看图):

主席 :郑启明 (坐者右五)
副主席:林顺德 (坐者右七)
秘书:巫凯军 (坐者右八)
财政:陈传华 (启明后面蓝衣)

恭祝这批新理事,祈求圣神引领及保佑他们,去完成他们的新使命。

通晓华语的赫神父,主祭了当天的感恩弥撒,然后主持了派遣礼,并降幅了全体的新理事,各任务局成员,及其他的参加者。

嗨, 我是清福。 第一次到来, 很有意思。 针对25-5-08刘副主教的无理言论, 我写了封英文信给予HERALD加以反驳。 更多的教友们应该要站出来反驳谬论。 要如何EMAIL 给你。 我的email: leochow83@gmail.com

主佑母宠。

清福,谢谢你的到访及留言。今天这个社会,很多时候,都是戴着颜色眼镜看事情。政治如此,教会也有这种情形,因为都是人性所为。

你的仗义执言,我对你致敬。
