It was very hot in the morning.
We were in Pertang to visit some friends, and will head for St. Augustine's Church Feast Day celebration in the afternoon at Titi, which is about 20 kms away.
Being used to the air-cond comfort at the Church of the Holy Family kajang, I was a little apprehensive of the heat in the afternoon at the little church at Titi.
God heard this lazy man's prayer. The weather changed cloudy in the afternoon and the temperature dropped. When we got to Titi, the church was cool and comfortable.
The Feast Day Mass was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Gregory Chan, and was attended by about 150 parishioners and well wishers from out-station like Seremban and Kuala Lumpur.
Fr. Gregory was ordained about a year ago. He is English educated but is able to recite missal prayer in Romanized Mandarin. However, he gave his sermon in Cantonese.
In his homily, he spoke about the story of St. Augustine's father, and his relationship with the son. St. Augustine was later renounced his sinful life and became a great saint.
After Mass, a fellowship dinner was held at the parish hall.
Parishioners have prepared many delicious Hakka dishes such as Hakka Yong Toufu, Fried pork, wild boar curry ......
Titi has recently become popular with tourist coming for nearby eco-farm stay, Hakka food and local produce.
