REPAIR OF ST ANN BARUK ROOF




Over the past few months, the roof of St Ann Baruk was subjected to strong winds and heavy rainfall. This has taken a toll on the roof and it is beginning to leak badly at certain areas.

The roof is unique in nature and one of its kind - the roof is made up of "Erau" leaves sewn together to give a distinct "Kampung-style cultural" look.

However, the supply of Erau leaves has diminished and there is not many skilled persons in this trade anymore.

Some years back, there were linoleum sheets placed upon the Erau leaves to protect them from disintegrating more rapidly. However this has been temporary measure to "save the roof".

The next option is to change the roofing material so that there is no major leaks inside the Baruk and the electrical wiring and equipment are protected from the natural elements.

The replacement of the roofing material by PVC material will amount to RM 38,900 - the roof will be stripped and strengthened and covered with PVC material.

I like to appeal for your generosity this Christmas season to help in this pressing need.

All cheque can be made to "St Ann's Mission"

May the good Lord bless you and your loved ones abundantly for your kind thoughts and care

COMPLETION OF LANDFILL (22 NOV 2010)


The land filling of the new St Ann Church site was completed after 48 days.The project began on 5th October and had to endure heavy rain for some of the days

Nevertheless, the project was finally completed on 22nd November 2010 and we now await for the soil to settle down over 6 - 8 months.

There is still more contribution needed to make this dream for the St Ann parishioners a reality and so be generous and keep us in your thoughts this Christmas and the years to come.
