The three institutes of the Pauline Family present in Sabah are the Daughters of St Paul (FSP), Association of Pauline Cooperators (APC) and the Institute of Our Lady of the Annunciation (IOLA).
Each year they commemorate the feast day of Blessed James Alberione on a date nearest to his death anniversary on November 26.
Born 1884 in Italy, Alberione founded ten institutes, known as the Pauline Family, between 1914 and 1960. He died on 26 Nov 1971. He was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 27 April 2003.
Father Mitchelly Kiun celebrated the Mass in the stead of Archbishop John Wong who later came straight from another function to join the four sisters, 25 Pauline Cooperators and collaborators, and one IOLA for the fellowship meal.
In his brief address, the prelate encouraged those present to carry on their apostolate of communications media in the archdiocese.
