What is CHOICE?
CHOICE is a weekend experience, to
give young single adults the opportunity to meet like-minded people,
and be able to look at the various relationships in our lives e.g.
family, friends, Church etc, in a relaxed and informal environment.
CHOICE is an Archdiocesen Catholic Ministry. In Kuala Lumpur, CHOICE KL is under the auspices of the Archdiocesen Single Adults and Youth Office (ASAYO). This means we are accountable to the Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur. Hence CHOICE is recognized by the Kuala Lumpur Archdiocese, as well as other Archdiocese around Malaysia. In Kuala Lumpur, our spiritual director is Rev Fr Raymond Michael, OFM Cap. Similarly in other Diocese / States in Malaysia, CHOICE is recognized as Ministry under the local Bishop in each respective Diocese
Who is CHOICE for?
CHOICE in Malaysia is for Working Adults age 23 to 40, for those of us who would like to take a break from fast-paced urgency-driven activities in favor of time to reflect, recharge and consider what matters most, in life, in the next year, the next month! It is open to anyone, Christians & Catholics, Buddhists, all faiths and free-thinkers. This is because the content of the program is universal, in nature. focusing on communication skills, people and choices. Participants often come with working colleagues and their classmates from various faiths.Is a CHOICE Weekend suitable for non-Catholics ?
The CHOICE Weekend is a Catholic program that focuses on the relationships in our daily lives, with family, friends, loved ones and God. It is NOT a program to Convert non-Christians. As this is a Catholic program, there are elements of practices of the Catholic faith throughout the program including reading from the Bible, and Mass. For participants who are not of the Catholic faith, extra sensitivities are taken to ensure that the participant is comfortable and is able to understand the program
What happens on a CHOICE Weekend?
We would love to tell you what happens in a CHOICE Weekend, but we really do not want to spoil the experience for you. The CHOICE weekend is best experienced, when you come with minimal expectations of the weekend. What we can say is that it is a retreat from our everyday hectic lives, to reflect and reconnect with God. The CHOICEs weekend is NOT counselling experience, nor a "match-making" weekend, nor recruitment for vocations nor a conversion to catholism weekend.
Isn't Choice a sort of match-making program?
Not at all. The emphasis is to love, not to look for love. The program is applicable to everyone including priest and religious.
What do I need to bring for CHOICE ?
Please remember to bring along any necessary toiletries I.e soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush and towels. If you are on medication, please bring it along as well. You do not need to bring your Bible or Rosary.
