MEMBAKUT – Sister Laura Anggie conducted two MLE sessions in the Diocese of Keningau recently.
The first session was held at St. Patrick Membakut on 26 Aug 2017 on the topic Church and Social Communication.
Membakut is a town about 80 km from the state capital of Kota Kinabalu.
Over a hundred people – young and old – attended the session organized by the Diocesan Commission on Social Communications.
The participants were divided into two groups – adults and children – for group sharing and discussion.
The next day, Aug. 28, Sr. Laura left for St. Peter Bundu Kuala Penyu for another session.
Kuala Penyu is about 20-minute drive from Membakut and is noted for its beautiful beaches.
Over 1000 young people took part in the diocesan camp for altar servers (boys and girls) from the nine parishes and one mission under the Keningau Diocese. However, some of the participants came from Sandakan Diocese and from Limbahau Parish (Kota Kinabalu Archdiocese).
Sr. Laura’s session dealt with how social media influences anti-social behavior in the family.
