"Wish you a perfect life just like the roundest moon in Mid-Autumn Day.
(from "China Highlights")
The Mid-Autumn Festival has been celebrated all throughout Ipoh town recently and OMPH Church, not wanting to be left out, held its own festival celebration at Parish level.
The Parish event was organized by the Chinese Apostolate group and held at the Church premises last Sunday evening September 11.
It was an elaborate affair with Parish Priest Rev Fr Joseph Stephens officiating at the event.
The evening started with dinner being served before commencment of the activities.
While the parishioners dined, a video was screened that explained how the Mid-Autumn celebration came about.
The activities after dinner included dances by the Chinese section and games where both young and senior could participate in.
The final event of the night was the lantern parade held at the car park of the church grounds.
It was an evening of fun for the families in the Parish that concluded by 10pm.
