KLANG: In conjunction with the feast of Christ the King on 25 November, parishioners of the Holy Redeemer Church (HRC) celebrated BEC Sunday with a funfilled family day. The event, initiated by the newly elected BECCOT members, is in-line with the Kuala Lumpur Archdiocesan’s 5-Year Plan (2017-2021) in strengthening Basic Ecclesial Communities.
The day began with a multilingual Mass at 9.00am celebrated by parish priest, Fr Clement Lim. During the homily, Fr Lim stressed that “BECs developed as an extension of the Church by virtue of their faith that establishes communion with God and communion with others.” He further emphasised that “it is important for every Catholic family or individual to be part of the BEC in your neighbourhood.” After the final blessing, all the BECs’ coordinators and core teams were commissioned.
After Mass, the BECs prepared booths for children and adults to collect stamps to redeem gifts sponsored by the Family Life Ministry. They also organised “The Family Amazing Race.” The Family Day offered a bouncy castle, food and carnival games.
One of the parishioners said, “It was my first time joining a HRC event, and I had loads of fun myself! It’s a good experience seeing people having fun with their friends and family. Everyone was welcoming and pleasant to each other.” The day ended with the giving of prizes to the winners.
