Past Events

Various events are organised by Caritas Malaysia to build the capacity of staff, volunteers, parish coordinators and  local community leaders.


Basic Communication workshops –
Writing, Photography and Videography
March – July 2021

The series consisted of six online workshops held between March and July, and explored the tools of basic Writing, Photography and Videography for social media.

The purpose was to train diocesan representatives in communication skills, using smartphone as a way to independently share news and information from their community. Through these skills, Caritas Malaysia hopes to promote local activities, projects and campaigns in each diocese to be shared on their social media platforms, including Caritas Malaysia’s national portal. This will also help share their learning with others and reach out to new and current volunteers, collaborators and benefactors. The programme was requested and jointly organised by Caritas Malaysia to support the diocese caritas office communication needs.

Lenten Retreat
6 February 2021

On 6 February 2021, Caritas Malaysia organised an online Lenten Retreat with the theme, “Renewing Faith, Hope and Love.” Bishop Bernard Paul reminded us of Lent as a time when: 1) fasting renews faith; new faith leads to our conversion; 2) prayer renews hope; hope inspires & illumines our mission; 3) almsgiving renews love; love moves us to share our goods; and 4) we return to the heart; the saving event & conversion.

FGD data analysis training

The diocese consultation is a step-by-step process that begins with listening.

A Focus Group Discussion (FGD) is a method used for listening and documenting what we hear from the voices on the ground.

FGD training for facilitators

Understanding the data helps us to understand life realities, where people are, what are their needs, aspirations or concerns.
