Celebrate and Remembrance with Faith, Hope and Love
[Nilai, Negeri Sembilan – 2 Nov 2016] Xiao En held its yearly All Souls Day event at Xiao En Memorial Park, Nilai on Wed 2nd November 2016. During All Souls Day, by praying for the souls of loved ones, it helps to remove the stain of sin, and allow the souls to enter the pearly gates of heaven. Through prayer and good works, living members of the church may help their departed friends and family.
The service was animated by Fr. Eugene Benedict from the Church of St Theresa, Nilai, Fr. George Harrison and Fr Andrew from the Church of the Visitation, Seremban. Asides from the normal prayer services, Xiao En Group has organized some interesting program for the guests, for example, to have some music performance with a beautiful garden and flower set up to brighten up the meaningful ceremony.
The ceremony started off with a welcome speech given by Fr. Eugene Benedict and Fr. George Harrison. After the opening ceremony, the Catholics guests visited the graves of their loved ones, where they light candles, leave flowers and sprinkle holy water, where the fathers will go around to the graves and columbarium to do the blessing.
At 11am, everyone came back to Xiao En’s garden area to proceed with the “Mass of All Souls Day” prayers and hymns. Xiao En All Souls Day 2016 ended with a meaningful < Message to the Loved Ones > balloon release ceremony, where the guests wrote a special message on a note, attach the note at the balloon, and release the balloon altogether. By releasing the balloons in the air, we hope that our loved ones in heaven will receive your special messages, to match our theme of the year – celebrate and remembrance with Faith, Hope and Love.
