This year, the MCCSD II aims to gather 1500 Catholic campus students from colleges and universities across Malaysia. For five consecutive days, campus students will get hands on experience and workshops on social causes as part of mission work, where they are called to go out and make a difference in the lives of others.
     Some of our CSSUPM members have taken parts in the event. As this year CSSUPM theme is To Serve As One In Unity And Love (S.O.U.L). This event will be a great platform for the members to understand deeper about services, unity and above all God's Love. Here are some pictures taken during the event.

It is normally celebrated by the ethnic Kadazan-Dusuns, as well as by other related ethnic groups in the state. Meanwhile, Gawai or Pesta Gawai is also a form of harvest festival celebrated by the Dayak People in Sarawak. The Dayaks, or also known as the Sea Dayak are mostly Iban people. There is also other ethnic such as the Bidayuh people or know as Land Dayak.Other than that, there is also the Orang Ulu that include the Kayans, Kenyahs and Lun Bawangs.
         The event was more of a santai-santai event. Other than that, this event was also held to strengthen the bond between the CSSUPM members.The main activity for the event was the BBQ session. There is also karaoke session for those who want to sing their ethnics songs. The event was  attended by Dr.Leo and Dr.Leslie.
