Malaysian Roman Catholic Bloggers Network

I will soon create a link aggregator page within this website called the Malaysian Roman Catholic Bloggers Network (MRCBN). The blogs do not necessarily have to be about Roman Catholicism or Christianity. As long as the blogger professes the faith, he is most welcomed to add his details in MRCBN. Bloggers are invited to send me an email with details of their blog names, url, name of parish church and location to be included in this list. I will also gladly add links of overseas bloggers who send me the same information. Links will not be arbitrarily added without the blogger’s consent.

This idea was born out of necessity on my part. When I first arrived in KL, I was looking for a church to attend Mass. There was little detail available on the Internet. Thanks to the information from Mystic and Adriene, I will be attending the 11:30am Mass this Sunday at Church of St. Francis Xavier in Petaling Jaya. The MRCBN can also serve as a launching point for Roman Catholics from all over Malaysia to forge fellowships via cyberspace.

Additionally, I welcome information on the location of Roman Catholic churches in Malaysia. This will be most helpful to those wishing to attend Mass or just visit the churches when they are in the neighbourhood. Please provide the name of the church, name of parish priest, address, telephone number and if possible, the Mass schedule. Please send all emails to mail@petertan.com. Alternatively, you can leave the details in the comment section of this entry. Likewise for the details of your blog. Thank you in advance. Peace be with you.

  5. I must have got mixed up but anyway you are doing a great job for our church in terms of interaction with old and young alike I and travel overseas often and it is a beautiful sight to see that the congregation attending mass is to the maximum especially in Norway where the catholic population is not that big and the majority are youngsters.Praise our Lord and Morher Mary for guiding us into the right path.God bless you…..Rupert

  8. Peter et al – I’m a Canadian now living in Mt Kiara (KL) and wondering where the nearest Catholic Chuch is to me. It seems from my looking around the closest churches are either in PJ at ST FX or in Brickfields. I work in Damansara Heights and have found nothing in this vicinity either.

    Cheers thanks

  10. Hi Peter,

    I’ve been searching for this Malaysian Roman Catholic Blogring for a long long time. I thought that Malaysian Catholics don’t blog at all. *sigh* But I really thank God that I found you and your site too!

    I’ll drop you a mail anyway. Hope you’ll add me to your list too!

    Thank you and God bless!

  11. Hi All,
    I suggest that you visit this website http://stpeterscollege.net
    Fr. Nicholas Ong of Kota Kinabalu has his weekly homily in audio form
    posted in this website. He speaks in English, Malay and Chinese(Hakka).
    His Hakka is not very good but he is making an effort, You will find
    his homilies loaded with powerful expressions and humour.

  12. Hi i’m a catholic from JB, currently studying in australia, and i love to blog. I would love to be part of this MRCB. looking forward to your reply. cheers and god bless

  13. Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone would know if there’s a Roman catholic Church / Chapel in Genting Highlands? It would be nice to attend mass when I am there during weekends.

    Thanks.

  14. Hi Peter,
    I’m Anne and I’m staying in Seri Kembangan, Selangor. I would like to start attending mass at any Roman Catholic Church nearest to my area of residence. Can anybody give me a list of Churches with their addresses and tel. no. around Seri Kembangan area, so that i can go to the one most convenient for me. I am aware that there is a Church in Kajang, but i don’t know the location or the way to get there. Thank you.

  15. Hi, everyone, bro n sis in christ..

    can somebody help me 2 find a church nearby my place? i at Batu Kawan, Penang..i juz posted here..can someone help me, pls? may i hav 2 address of the church nearby n contact number?

  16. Thanks, Monita for the info on mass times at St Joseph’s, Kuching. Definitely, churches here are a little slow off the mark in hosting websites to aid travellers like myself to find info via the net. In Australia, you can get info from either a group website or individual church website.

    Great job, people – keep it up!

    Dear Anne (posted on July 16th, 2006 at 13:36)

    Here’s contact details to Kajang parish:

    Church of the Holy Family (1899)
    11 Jalan Gereja, 43000 Kajang
    Selangor
    Tel: 03-8733 1154
    Fax: 03-8733 0471

    Parish Priest: Rev. Leow, Julian
    PPC Chairperson: Mr Simon Phun
    Saturday Sunset Mass: 7.00pm (E)
    Sunday Masses: 8.15am(E), 10.00am(C) & 5.30pm(T)

    Direction: Find yourself to PLUS highway. Exit the highway through Kajang toll and drive toward Kajang town. Arriving in Kajang, you should follow the road continuously pass through several traffic light before meeting Metro Hotel on your right. The church is behind Metro Hotel. Take a right turn at the traffic light after the hotel main entrance. For exact details, please try the phone number above.

    An alternate for Seri Kembangan, would be Chapel of St.Anne locate within the University Putra of Malaysia (UPM). Mainly cater for the need of Catholic student studying in UPM by a priest from St Francis Xavier, Petaling Jaya. But you could find nearby resident attending here. Mass is Sat evening. I am unsure of the exact time. Try being there before 6pm. Please note, there will be no Mass during the varsity student holiday.

    Direction to Chapel of St.Anne: Find yourself to PLUS highway. Take the UPM, Serdang exit. Immediately after toll gate, go straight at the traffic light. Next take the 1st left turn. Go straight ahead after the left turning for about approximately 1 km. You should find the Chapel on your left, near an entrance with guard house. It more like a stand-alone house when it’s vacant. (Besides PLUS, there is alternate route to UPM from Seri Kembangan)
