On behalf of the St Ann Feast day Committee (SAFD), I want to congratulate and thank everyone who was actively involved (Kampungs/Tamans/Individuals) in the Feast day sales on 25 July 2010 and the Feast-day dinner on 25 August 2010.
The good news is:
WE HAVE ACHIEVED OUR TARGET
This year, the parish has started a new initiative whereby a certain sum of money will be set aside to help with the development of some of the village chapels. These chapels do not have the means or resources to be able to complete their chapels for example the chapels in Kg Batu Gong, Kg Semeru and Kg Petag.
This gesture by the other kampungs together with the parish shows a united effort to help the sister chapels in need which is very much in line with Christian spirit of helping another community in need to build God's kingdom.
This will not be possible without the donations from our well wishers and benefactors.
May the good Lord continue to bless you abundantly.

Just before the feast-day of St Ann, there was a pattern observed about the weather that is it rained heavily in the afternoon or sometimes in the morning. One is not able to predict anything concrete about the weather nowadays.
And one parishoner with great confidence mentioned that it will surely rain over the weekend and his bet was 99.9%. Looks like a gloomy statistics especially for an important day for the parishoners of St Ann.
However, I made the decision to pray and ask the Lord for fine weather over the weekend because there was alot of efforts, personal sacrifices, blood sweat and tears put in by the St Ann Feast day committee members and volunteers.
Imagine the surprise, when the dawn broke forth on both days, there was not even a single drop of rain felt. Not a miracle for sure because the Lord truly takes care of his people and their needs in a generous and overflowing manner and wants his people to celebrate.
The important thing is "Do not doubt",
Because the Lord has a wonderful plan for all of us in every particular situation that also include challenging and difficult situations.
