Blessed Sacrament Church launched another initiative to reach out to its community at the Sunday morning Mass on 12th August, 2018. The 11th Kuching Company, The Boys Brigade and 11th Kuching Company, The Girls Brigade were officially commissioned by BSC rector, Fr Felix Au.
In his resolve to promote faith formation and discipline at a tender age, Fr Felix gave his blessings for the setting up of both a BB and GB Company at BSC. A recruitment drive for helpers and officers began in late December last year.
In March 2018, the only existing Catholic Boys Brigade Company in Sarawak conducted their first BB meeting at Blessed Sacrament Church. The GB, a separate organisation, held their meeting the following month.
There are currently 4 Catholic Boys Brigade Companies in Malaysia. The other 3 are in Sabah. The Church’s Girls Brigade stands on record as the first ever Catholic GB company in Sarawak.
The advancement of Christ’s Kingdom among members and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian Character.
SURE & STEDFAST (taken from Hebrews 6:19). The original Old English (King James Version) spelling of ‘Stedfast’ has been retained.
Seek, Serve and Follow Christ.
To help girls become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ and through Self-Control, Reverence and a sense of Responsibility to find true Enrichment of Life.
There are different levels of recruitment into both the Boys Brigade and Girls Brigade, which may vary slightly. However, both the BB and GB are currently collaborating to focus only on the Junior Section, which is open to boys and girls aged 9 – 12 years old. There are plans to start a Senior Section for youths of 13 – 18 years’ age group next year.
The 11th Kuching Company Boys Brigade now has 7 Officers and 20 boys, with Clement Sii as their Captain. He was from the 2nd Kuching Company Boys’ Brigade at Trinity Methodist Church.
The 11th Kuching Company Girls Brigade has 4 Officers serving 14 girls. Its Captain is Julita Chen from 3rd Kuching Company Girls’ Brigade at Trinity Methodist Church.
