Sibu day 3 诗巫第三天

We attended 9:15am Mass at the St Theresa at Sg Merah celebrated by Fr. Tham.

Fr. Tham will be celebrating his 90th birthday next year. He is still healthy and active in discharging his priestly duties.

After Mass, we went to Alice Ho's house to have breakfast.

Alice's mother Theresa, prepared Heng Hua mee hoon and mee soup for us.

After breakfast, we left for Sibu jetty to take a 3 hours passenger boat ride to Kapit, a small riverine town on the upstream of Rajang river.

Fr. Fabian Kong, ordained about one and a half year ago,  and the assistant parish priest of Mary Immaculate Conception Church Kapit welcomed us to his parish and gracefully invite us to stay at the parochial house. 

Later in the evening, he drove us to a visit a modern long house about 45 minutes drive from the church.

Edward, one of the occupants, received us warmly into his house.

At night, the Chinese speaking community invited us to their weekly prayer gathering and fellowship which normally held at their home, but changed the venue to the parochial house for our convenience.

We enjoyed their company and the food prepared by them too.

Thanks and appreciation to Fr. Fabian and his community for hospitality extended to us.
