Hi May I know Mass timing for Good Friday?
Please refer to the front page of our website.
Hello.. how to enter the sunday class for my son..? My son is 12 years now..
Please contact the parish office, either by phone or go to personally. Most probably, you have to register your son, so you got to go to the office anyway.
I have been trying to get info for mass times for Church of Immaculate Conception, for NewYear week end.

Hello, I am trying to trace some some of my long-lost relations. They used to attend your c
C hurch in the early 20th century. Their NAMES would have been in your BAPTISM Register and also in your MARRIAGE Register.. Please contact me by Email. Thanks.
Can you please contact the parish with the request that you need? The parish email is stated above (anyway, it is email@example.com).
Good luck with trying to get the information. I have been trying to obtain information about early settlers in Penang for my PhD thesis for around 3 years now with no success.
I would like to enquire on the requirements to hold a wedding in the St Francis Xavier Church. My son is a Malaysian catholic and would be bride is an Indonesian catholic. What are the formalities and or any documents required by the church? Thank you.
good day! we are going on a cruise this december and we will be docked at the penang port on dec 25. may i know what church is near the port and if there are available mass schedules for christmas day?
Hi there. The nearest church to the port is the Church of the Assumption. You may check the address at the ‘About us’ link above. Yes, on Christmas day and Christmas eve, there will be a Mass. The time of the Masses will be known only at least a month before Christmas, but usually on Christmas eve, it is 9.00pm and Christmas day, it is 10.00am.
I am going to Penang for All Souls Day. What is the time for mass at Western Rd Cemetary? Also any Mass at Francis Xavier or Assumption churches that day?
Beatrice, All Souls Day is not a day of obligation, so there will be no Mass for All Souls Day. However, if there is, usually, the Mass will be at the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows, the main church, and not Assumption or St Francis Xavier.
It is still early for the parish to decide the time of Masses, if any, on All Souls Day (most probably no) and on All Saints Day. (but usually on All Saints Day, there will be Masses at all the 4 City Parish churches, since it is a day of obligation). Come back about 2 weeks before All Saints Day, to see if the time schedule is up.
As for Mass at Western Rd cemetery, no, there will be no Mass at all at the cemetery, as with every year (since it is not a day of obligation) but there will be a short service, followed by blessing of graves.
Hi Lucia! I have not heard back regarding my request for information on my Botelho/Botellho family. Please, please, please, respond. 😦 Thank you.
Hi Nancy, have you email to the parish? You have to email to the parish and they’ll check for you. Parish email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyway, for now I’ll forward your request to the parish email.
We 3 Catholics visiting fr Singapore. What time us Ascencion Mass on May28/29? Hope there us sunset mass at Assumption near our hotel.
Can you please go to the parish bulletin link (can be seen on top menu) to download our bulletin for the time of Masses. Anyway, the direct link is here:
Btw, which hotel are you staying? Is it the City Bayview? There is no sunset Mass for Ascension (not being a Sunday Mass) but a Mass at 12 noon at Assumption. The St Francis Xavier church is also nearby to the Assumption church and the Mass is at 7.00 pm.
My family history quests leads me to Penang. My ancestor Eugene (Eugenio) Botelho/Botellho was born in 1790 in Penang to Nicolao and Catherina Botelho.. Does the Cathedral of the Assumption still retain baptism, marriage and burial records from 1785-1820? Thank you. Nancy Rixon Lilly
Hi Nancy, can you please send an email to the parish to find out? It would be good if you have the exact date, if not, at least the year, so that it is easy for the parish to check. Email your enquiry with the necessary information (as many and as exact as possible) to the parish at email@example.com
