BSC KUCHING: Recently, parishioners from St Francis of Assisi, Cheras Kuala Lumpur, embarked on a pilgrimage to Sarawak.

They comprised five couples who visited Blessed Sacrament Church, St Joseph’s Cathedral, as well as the pilgrimage sites of Mount Hosanna in Sri Aman and Mount Singai in Bau.

The pilgrims, after attending the Requiem Mass celebrated by Fr Felix Au at Blessed Sacrament Church on 27 September, were entertained to a fellowship reception by Emmaus Servant Community at their Prayer Meeting.

The pilgrims visited Mount Hosanna Chapel on 28 September and were fascinated by its architecture. The Chapel is shaped like three pure white candles representing the ‘Trinity – Father, Son & Holy Spirit’.

It is located 33km from Sri Aman town and 157km from Kuching town.

Initiated by the late Rev Fr Richard Khoo with donations from well-wishers, the 100 steps leading up to the Chapel is also known as ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ and symbolize a ladder to heaven.

According to their spokesperson Dev Emmanuel, apart from Sarawak, they have also travelled to India as part of their pilgrimage mission.
