Lasallians Celebrate Multiracial Christmas

LEAD Story 320

PETALING JAYA: The spirit of Christmas was shared by a multiracial Lasallian fraternity during a fellowship here.

“A Christmas Evening with Lasallians” was hosted by the Malaysian Federation of Lasallian Alumni Associations at La Salle Hall in Lorong 5/15B here, just opposite SMK La Salle in Seksyen 5 on Sunday.

The guests of honour were La Salle Brothers of Malaysia director Brother Andrew Loke and Brother Lucian Ng.

Present at the facility, part of the La Salle Provincialate, were association president Michael Simon, event organising chairman K. Paramjothy, activities chairman James Sia and secretary Don Darrell Augustine.

Sia said the evening was attended by youths and seniors from the 19 alumni associations nationwide.

“The youth’s role is important to keep activities like these alive to foster racial unity in our society. These are the youth who will take over the leadership from us seniors, who are an ageing lot,” said Sia of the event, which was complete with carols and a dinner.

He said they were fortunate to have La Salle Hall, which had been refurbished, complete with rooms for social functions and training seminars.

“The facility has a tennis court and 18 rooms for daily rental. La Salle Hall is also spacious for garden parties,” said Sia, who is former president of the Franciscan Club of Kuala Lumpur.
