Oct 22, 2023…It has been a wonderful priesthood journey for the Franciscan Priest in St. Michael’s Penampang parish with the hope to be able to celebrate future sacerdotal anniversaries in his commitment to God through profession of obedience, poverty and chastity living in the spirit of Saint Francis.
Friar Cruzender who is currently pursuing his Masters in Psychology (Counseling) at UMS while serving his priesthood duties in assisting the parish priest, thanking the pastoral committee for this beautiful arrangement of closed dinner gathering attended by mostly the Parish Pastoral, Finance & Property committee members held at the mission office rectory. Special guests are Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Wilfred Atin and fellow assistant priests Rev. Fr. Gilbert Marcus, Rev. Fr. Lawrence Kim and Rev. Fr. Andrew Kim.
Fr. Atin in his short speech expressed his appreciation to the Friar for his dedicated service and praised the diversity of priesthood orders in the parish while wishing him the very best of blessing in his studies…JJ/Soccom
