50 Years of Profession as Marist Brothers

01/02/2019: Malaysia

On January 26, 2019, Brothers Anthony Cheng and Paul Ching, from the Province of East Asia, celebrated their 50th golden jubilee as Marist Brothers with a celebration hold in the Church of the Holy Name of Mary in Permatang Tinggi, Diocese of Penang, in Malaysia.

The brothers from China Sector and the members of the Provincial Council joined the families and friends of Br. Anthony and Br. Paul in thanking God for the gift of Marist vocation and His fidelity through the years.

Reflecting on the readings for the 3rd Sunday of Ordinary Time, Bishop Sebastian Francis, the main presider, gave a fresh perspective to what is essential in the life of a religious. He said that Br. Anthony and Br. Paul could not have survived 50 years without a personal relationship with the Word of God.

The liturgy was highlighted by the renewal of vows of Br. Anthony and Br. Paul.  After the Eucharist, the congregation moved to the parish hall where a sumptuous dinner was served and tributes to the jubilarians were rendered.

Br. Anthony is presently living in the Sector House community in Petaling Jaya, where he gives Bible classes and Mathematics tutorials to students. He also oversees the operation of the Champagnat Youth Center in Port Dickson.
On the other hand, Br. Paul has just started a mission in Nabawan, Sabah, where there is a hostel for indigenous boys and girls which the de la Salle Brothers asked us to help them manage.
