The objectives of the meeting were to discuss the previous structure as well as events organized and the new structure along with its implementation process.
The previous structure consisted of 6 committee members with posts namely the president, 2 vices, a secretary, a logistics as well as a publicity representative with 4 major annual events hosted which are the Leaders in Training (L.I.T) Camp, Appreciation Dinner, and District as well as Diocese level meetings.
As per the 52nd M.J.C.C Diocese-Level Meeting, this meeting marked an exciting time for Malacca-Johore Catholics on Campus (MJCC) with its renewed focus on District-Level Empowerment, creativity in its approaches and boldness in its ambitions for the Lord.
There will now be four (4) districts: South Johore 1, South Johore 2, Malacca and North Johore.
The new structure now consists of 1-2 appointed leaders either a representative and/or the president of each CSS/CF for each district called Campus in Action (C.I.A). Each district is encouraged to organize Local District Programs.
One of the many opportunities we see as a committee is District-Level Empowerment. We wish to empower District Level Committees to organize and plan programs suited for the District (Malacca, North and South Johore 1 & 2) and to be able to reach out to more Christian Students within the District.
One great example of a local district program is Let’s MEET which stands for Meeting Excitedly and Expectantly Together. It aims to provide for students a monthly retreat, a safe space to share and encourage one another in faith and a community experience founded on prayer and outreach.
Now, with the new structure in place, the following events are undergoing the planning process and each district is diligently taking charge.
- Leaders in Training (Malaysia Day) (1st Sem)
- Appreciation Dinner (2nd Sem)
- Diocese Meetings (1 Each Sem)
- District FORMATIONS (instead of Meeting; organized by local District Comm.)
