The Church of St Francis of Assisi (SFA) had its humble beginnings in 1979 to cater for a mere 40 to 60 families then. Facilities for meeting rooms, library and venues for faith formation classes were also not proper and adequate then.

Through the years, SFA has endured and lived with “lean” facilities and today 29 years later, all these have not changed whilst the Parish has grown heaps and bounds to more than 3000 parishioners. The seating capacity in the church has “burst its seams” and it is now inadequate to meet the growing needs of the Community today and the children in the future. Not only are the Parishioners having to be seated at the wings of the Church but the dilapidated condition of the facilities are also no longer conducive.

Concerned and caring for the Parishioners’ needs, the Parish, in April 2007, launched the SFA Church Building Project and since then has embarked on several fundraising activities, targeting to raise RM 6.5 Million. It is the dream and determination of the Parishioners  to see the “New” SFA Church in the next 5 to 6 years; extended and renovated with a new Multi-Purpose Community Centre to house classrooms, function hall, parish house & funeral parlor. A Grotto of Mother Mary and training facilities will also be part of the plan.

The first fundraising event kick-started in November 2007 and since then many events have been successfully launched. With the fire of zeal still burning, a string of exciting events have been planned and lined up for 2009

Parish Priest’s Message

My Dearest Parishioners & Friends,

It is with a deep sense of urgency that I write to you appealing for your support to make this dream a reality. We are in the process of collecting funds for our building. Limited by space, we hope to build up this 3-storey community centre and to extend and renovate the Church building with your generous help. The Church needs RM 6.5 Million to complete the project.

Ever since the Church was built in 1979, we have been without proper rooms both for our meetings and Sunday School. I also do not wish to see the parishioners sitting in the wings of the Church forever due to lack of space inside. Now is the time for you, young and old, to be part of this dream. I am sure that all of us want the best for our children. Let us give them a place where they will always be welcome. I appeal to your generous hearts to donate or sponsor to make this building project the fruit of your contribution.

May God in His Goodness bless you and your families with life, health, peace and all spiritual blessings for your generosity. The Lord says,” Give and gifts will be yours”.

With Prayers and Gratitude,

Fr. Andrew Manikam, OFM, Cap.
Parish Priest
