My wife and I attended a weekend Formation & Recollection conducted by Rev. Deacon Sherman Kuek from Johor-Melaka Diocese.

It was held over the weekend from Jan 29 to 31st at the Wisdom Hall, Holy Family Church. About 60 parishioners attended this programme with the theme " The Mystery of Mercy".

Deacon Sherman (40) was a former Anglican Pastor. He converted to Catholicism about 8 years ago and later ordained a Deacon by Bishop Paul Tan of Johor-Melaka Diocese in 2010.

His easy-to-understand language, systematic way of bringing us walking through the Old and New Testament, allowing participants to see and feel the presence of God's Mercy in the lives of His people.

Not only have a better knowledge of the Bible, I also have a deeper understanding of the meaning of Justice, Mercy, Church and Sacraments.

It was a wonderful and merciful great weekend for us.
