Events not endorsed by Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur

It has come to the attention of the Archdiocese that two events are being organised by groups that are not affiliated to or endorsed by the Archdiocese:

A) A Talk entitled “Catholic Tradition: Ever Ancient Ever New”, scheduled to take place on the 5th of August, 2019, which is organised by the Chapel of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a chapel not recognised by the Archdiocese, which is under the care of the priests of the Society of St Pius X (SSPX). SSPX does not have regular canonical status with the Church. The views of the SSPX also dissent from the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and they have serious questions about the order of mass promulgated by Pope St Paul VI;

B) A Weekend Camp scheduled to take place from the 14th to the 16th of September 2019, organised by a group calling itself the Catholic Youth Movement of Malaysia, which is of unknown origins and not affiliated to any parishes or Archdiocesan bodies or commissions.


The faithful are advised not to participate or support either of the above events as they have not been endorsed or recognised by the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur.
