For the last 3 months, members of the St Ann's Complex Committee have been trudging up to the villages and visiting housing estates, armed with a laptop and an LCD projector to explain the new St Ann's Complex project. The members had been travelling up to 2 or 3 times a week with the priests. Seeing as some of these villages are quite a distance from the parish, their efforts have not been small feats! The photo shows Ms Ani Solep addressing the Catholic community of St James at kampung Tatuk, situated near the Indonesian border, about an hour's journey by car from St Ann's. By the end of November, the parish would have covered almost 50 villages and housing estates. It is our earnest hope that all our parishioners are well informed of this project and consequently, give their unwavering support.
