Ladies Guild

St. Peter’s Ladies’ Guild was founded by Reverend Sister Ita Ling in 1976. Part of the Objectives of its formation was to uphold the dignity of women in the Parish and to provide for them an arena in which they could belong and can have a place to express themselves in contributing to the liturgical and pastoral works of the church.

The Guild is member of the Kuching Archdiocesan Ladies’ Guild. Our Vice President is holding the post of Treasurer in the Archdiocesan Ladies’ Guild.

The Guild at present has 42 members. Monthly meetings are held on the first Saturday of the month in St Peter’s Parish Centre.

Our activities include annual outing, helping to provide the food at the Chinese New Year Open House, Home visiting, and Lenten Pilgrimage to name a few.

Some of our members are involved in the Liturgical Ministries such as the Choir and Readers and Commentators. Some are also involved in the CAFE’ workshops.

We hope to recruit new members especially the younger set so that more parishioners may be given the chance to participate actively in the Parish activities.

We hope to make trips to visit other parishes in other divisions like Sri Aman, Kanowit, Kapit or Miri.

Ministry of Sacristan

One of the “hidden” liturgical ministries is that of sacristan. The Sacristan normally works behind the scene to ensure that the Eucharistic celebration may be able to carry out smoothly. Her jobs include opening and locking up the church, ensuring the church is appropriately decorated, making certain that what is required for the celebration is where it is supposed to be and many other little things.

Many parishioners fail to realize such an important service this particular ministry is providing for the worshipping assembly.

Ministry of Altar Serving

One of the important ministries in the parish is altar serving. The Altar servers are trained and formed in the ministry of altar serving by the leaders. These altar servers assist the priest at the altar during the Eucharistic celebration. They provide the necessary services for the priest so that he can carry out his ministry in the presence of the liturgical assembly. The number of altar servers required for each Eucharistic celebration depends on the type of celebration and functions required of the altar servers to perform.

The parish has three different mass groups of altar servers which have their own leaders to take care of their training and scheduling. The altar servers of a particular mass group submit themselves to the leadership of their group. All three mass group’s leader comes under the overall leader and his assistant. All leaders are appointed by the Rector. Leadership qualities are uncovered and enhanced through the formation programs that are provided. Like the Warden ministry during big feast days, the altar servers of these mass groups combine and work together under the leadership of the Ministry leader and his Assistant.

The ministry of Readers and Commentators

The ministry of readers is one of proclaiming the word of God during the liturgy of the Word. These are men and women who are specially selected and trained to read the word of God to the worshipping assembly. They do not only read the word of God clearly but also interpret those words so that the people really listen to God speaking to them inviting them to enter into a deeper relationship with him. Hence, each reader when tasks to read the word of God during the liturgy of the Word must himself or herself prepare well not only in term of reading, but also his or her understanding of those words that has been entrusted to them to proclaim.

The ministry of commentating during the Eucharistic celebration is one of announcing hymns, indicating to the assembly their proper posture of standing, sitting or kneeling and other necessary announcements, so that the celebration can run smoothly.

In our Parish, readers and commentators, either during Eucharistic celebrations of weekday or weekend, are assigned by their co-ordinator who is appointed by the Rector.

Interested parishioners are cordially invited to join &
participate in the lector ministry (reader & commentator):

Please contact Parish Rector [ Rev. Fr Vincent Chin ] for appointment.

The Ministry of Choir

The Ministry of Choir is to enhance the active liturgical participation of the Worshipping Assembly. Hence, they are not performers. Rather they are leaders who help those who come to church to make use of their voices in praising and thanking God. Each time there are new hymns to be sung, the choir will take time to teach the congregation how to sing them before the Eucharistic celebration begins.

The ideal situation is that all those who come to the Church will be able to raise their voices to give praise to the Lord. To achieve these, the choir’s role is to ensure that the hymns they have chosen are hymns that the congregation can sing at the same time they do have the texts of the hymns in front of them in order that they might be able to join in.

Our Parish has three choir groups:
