Indonesian Catholic official brings cheer to sick

January 17, 2011

INDONESIA: A Catholic deputy district chief in Indonesia’s East Nusa Tenggara province has brought belated festive cheer with a party for more than 100 people suffering from leprosy and other physical handicaps.

“I wanted to invite the local government and the Church to help serve those less fortunate,” said Ludovikus Taolin, from Belu district.
The party was held at the Malaka Timur sub-district office in Seon.
A Mass led by Father Kanisius Oki from Christ the King Church in Seon began proceedings which also saw Taolin distribute gifts and money to the 138 people who attended.
