6.  INFORMATION  ON  WISMA  ST.  JOSEPH 
      Please be informed that due to financial and educational reasons, the diocese has made changes to the Wisma St Joseph project. We will not relocate SK St Joseph for now. The other three components, the new Cathedral complex, a new chapel in Permyjaya and refurbishing the old bishop’s house will go on accordingly. To date, we have raised about RM10 million in cash and pledges and hope to start the new Cathedral complex by the second half of 2017. We ask for your continual support and prayers for the successful completion of Wisma St Joseph.
