SiGN

Who we are

SiGN is a Parish based mission group from the parish of St Francis Xavier. While most of our members are from within the parish, we do welcome like-minded people from outside the parish, whether they be Christian or not, to journey with us and to experience the richness of life as a part of a Christian Community.

SiGN's Vision

To foster missionary zeal within Saint Francis Xavier parish to bring the hope of Christ to people overseas

SiGN's Mission

To proclaim the Gospel and serve God's People

SiGN's Values

Led by the Spirit, Fed by the Word

Gentle in Word, Humble in Deed.

History

Sowers in God's Name (SiGN) was conceived on 5th September 2009, in the year of the Parish's 50th anniversary celebrations. In December 2009, she sent her first parish mission team to Cambodia. After making five parish mission awareness and exploratory mission trips to Cambodia, the Philippines and Sabah, our parish decided on 19th April 2012 to support the work of the Congregation of Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception (FSIC) in Paitan, Sabah, and in particular, to support the kindergartens set up by FSIC for the children in Paitan. This is because we affirm their conviction that education is an agent of change – a change for a better future, and where better to start than with the children.
