  • As our churches, chapels and Mass centres are reopening for public Masses from the 13th of March, His Grace, Most Reverend Julian Leow D.D., the Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur has commissioned the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission to prepare liturgical guidelines and family devotional resource materials for a safe and meaningful celebration of Holy Week.
