Kuala Lumpur:- This year Christmas Bazaar at the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was held on Dec 5 & 6, 2015, that saw a good turnout on both dates. Parishioners were present at the parish hall in Dewan Louis Guittat of Bangunan Dominic Vendargon and in the Church courtyard where tables were earlier allocated to ‘sellers’ that were setup for the bazaar.(Image)
Many patronized the stalls that offer a variety of Christmas items ranging from potted Poinsttias to Christmas decorations and cookies, toys and the like. Non- Christmas items were also on sale at some tables.
The aim of having this bazaar is for parishioners to obtain ‘bargains’ and attractive items or articles for Christmas from the stalls that are on offer. At the same time the parish earned some money from the rental of the ‘tables’ and space from the sellers, that will be utilized for charity or for some good purposes. At the same time this to assist the sellers to earn some sales during the Advent Season.
Parish priest, Fr Edwin Peter who was present at the start of the Christmas Bazaar gave a few words of encouragement and hope that this bazaar also brings the parishioners together, as they prepare materially for Christmas, not to forget the spiritual aspect as well.
