THE ADVENTURES OF OBLATES - The Inculturation Cross



At Pulau Sapi, one of the Indonesian Oblates’ missions inside East Kalimantan (Borneo), especially among the laity who mostly originated from Dayak Punan tribes, the proclaiming of Kingdom of God is revealed through simple ways that can make the people understand their faith in Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.

One of the way to make people easily understand what is being preached is by inculturation. At Sentaban, Parish of St. Yohanes (Saint John), Pulau Sapi, we can find Mother Mary carrying Infant Jesus, as well as the cross of Jesus presenting in Dayak traditional custom.
