Introduction to St Ann's Parish
A brief introduction to St Ann Padawan, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia, Borneo
St Ann’s parish cares for 45 villages, 14 schools and more than 10 housing estates, with a estimated population of 18,167 Catholics.
The church itself began as an outstation mission of St Joseph’s Church (at present St Joseph’s Cathedral) in the late 1940s when the Archdiocese of Kuching had yet existed.
Today, the church accommodates some 2,000 parishioners every Sunday, and works are in progress to gather funds and complete a new church complex located some 200 meters from the existing 'open air' church.
