Papal cross for Borneo native

Keywords: Catechism, Penampang, Borneo

A native catechist, Thomas I Lanjuat, who has been teaching the Catechism to " the wild men of Borneo " for 25 years, has been decorated by the Holy Father with the gold cross Pro Ecclesia el Pomifice.

His lonely wanderings in the Penampang district have been so successful that there is hardly a pagan left in the area.

After the presentation ceremony, Thomas Lanjuat set out to seek fresh missionary fields to conquer.
