Father Jojo’s forum

I heard about Father Jojo several years ago. A friend, who is not a Catholic told me how cool Father Jojo is. That intriguing statement has been on my mind like 7 years ago. (psst…you don’t relate ‘cool’ with Catholic priests, ok? But they are changing 🙂 THANK GOD!)

Finally, I will probably get to meet Father Jojo because he is coming to town. From what I heard, he is a Sarawakian Sabahan and looks very ethnic as in how we West Malaysians think East Malaysians live on trees, wear a piece of triangle leather hide to cover-up and use blowpipes to catch small animals for their meals. *runs from kaDusMama and all Sarawakians and Sabahans*

My church is organising a forum call Keep Hope Alive on April 2nd.

KEEP HOPE ALIVE – Forum

Thursday, 2 April 2009 • 8 pm

Venue: Dewan Holy Spirit

One of the aspects of the programme for Lent is to BE AWARE of issues affecting our community, our country and the world in general.

The theme for the Forum – KEEP HOPE ALIVE – will be examined from three inter-related angles:-

• Rev. Dr. Joseph (Jojo) M. Fung, SJ will approach the Lenten Theme from the angle of the anthropology of human agency
• Mr. Anil Netto will take the socio-economic and political approach
• Ms Audrey Cheah will deliberate on the role of the family unit in keeping hope alive.

Cathedral of The Holy Spirit
No1. Tingkat Besi Satu, Island Park, 11600 Penang. Tel: 04 658 4909 / 656 6681 Fax: 04 656 4309

For more details, you can download the flyer and poster in pdf format from the church site.

All non-Muslims are welcome. Anyway, it is not a preachy-preachy religious talk so do drop by and hear Father Jojo’s very dynamic talk.

By the way, WEBMASTERS and WordPress junkies, anyone can tell me why the single post gives me a 404 error here on single pages? I am going crazy because I cannot get the WordPress to work. My church website is hosted on Windows and not Linux. (don’t ask me why) No cpanel and I think I want to strangle self with my computer wires already. Also, what is the easiest application to edit my html pages that we used Dreamweaver to build? (i no longer have dreamweaver)

  1. Fr. Jojo not only cool but oso hemsem. When he was in SFX PJ, man we guys go to church to look at those leng lui who dress “up” for Fr Jojo …kah kah kah.

    His sermon oso dashyat one, very simple ah pek kind of guy.

  2. Dominic – Kahkahkah…last time when our new young priest join the parish, suddenly everyone wears sarees to mass. Not just simple ones but golden, shiny type. But I guess they got tired eventually. Thank God for that.

  3. I had that problem with one site – single posts cannot be viewed. Webmaster solved it with some nifty permalink redirect or something – sorry I don’t know how he did it but I think you know who to ask 🙂

  4. How your Windows server handles permalink redirection ah? Got .htaccess there boh?

  9. i think Fr. Jojo is Sabahan eh…

  10. he came to my church before… a very good and inspiring speaker indeed.

  11. He is a now/used a parish priest in Skudai serving UTM universiti students.. I believe he is a Sabahan not a Sarawakian..

    He is the 1st priest that i saw before that has a long hair..

  12. my whole family was so surprised and happy to see him today at our church in Singapore. We couldnt believe it..the last memory i had of him in SFX PJ was him singing ‘The Prodigal Son’ in such a touching and amazing voice.
