KUCHING – On the 17-23 December 2012, the Kuching Young Christian Students (KYCS) had their annual house-to-house Christmas Carolling to herald the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. About a month before the Carolling nights, the carollers practiced tirelessly to perfect their singing and to prepare for the birth of Christ. The group consisted of about 40 carollers consisting students, seniors, student animators and teacher animators.

Carollers in action!

The scripture reading this year was taken from Isaiah 9:6-7 on announcing the birth of Jesus. We went to 53 houses covering Pending, Kota Samarahan and Jalan Matang besides various religious houses throughout the 7 nights. Each night was filled with various fun-filled and new experiences. We enjoyed singing for the Lord and spreading the joy of Christmas to the house owners. It was a blessing to see fellow brothers and sisters in Christ listening to the carols in preparation for Christmas.

A Family Night was also held on Sunday, 9 December 2012 at St Joseph’s Parish Gallery. The evening was well attended by parents, siblings, relatives and friends of the carollers. On a pot-bless basis, everyone had a great evening listening to the carols and sectional performances brought forth by the carollers themselves. There were interactive games with parents and testimonies given by parents and carollers. Fr Felix, Chairperson of Commission for Youth was also present that evening together with Youth Coordinators Lucy Gumek and Monica Lisa.
