Charities Week 2016
This year’s Charities Week, the main Archdiocesan fundraising campaign, has helped Caritas Singapore to raise about $3 million to-date. They have now entered the 6th week and as compared with last year’s collection of $5.8 million, there is still some way to go before they are able to achieve their target.
Your generous support is greatly appreciated.
Proceeds will enable Agape Village, a project of Caritas Singapore and many Catholic organisations under its umbrella to continue their work in reaching out to those in need. These include the poor, families, youth and children, prisoners, migrant workers, persons with HIV/AIDS, persons with physical and mental challenges, and overseas humanitarian aid.
Pick up a Charities Week appeal envelope at bulletin stands in church. Or you may mail your donation directly to Caritas Singapore (for cheques only), or drop them at the parish office during office hours.
For walk-in donations, please visit Caritas Singapore, 55 Waterloo Street #08-01, Catholic Centre. Your contribution will make a difference to the lives of those in need. For more information, please call 63383448 or visit www.caritas-singapore.org.
Easter Reflection Booklet 2016
This Easter season, we focus our energies on living in the presence of the Risen Lord, with help from the Office for the New Evangelisation, which has produced a booklet with resources to enable us to spend time sharing and reflecting with our families, friends and church ministry members.
Pick up a free copy at the church bulletin stands or at the church office. Or download a copy online here.
Year of Mercy Reflection Booklet – “Compassion”
The Office for the New Evangelisation has been hard at work producing resource guides for the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Three reflection booklets, filled with Scripture passages, prayers, notes and reflection points, will be distributed at all parishes in Singapore every month starting in April.
The first of three booklets is titled “Compassion”, to help us reflect on and show mercy to others, to be compassionate, because being compassionate is the way of being a Christian.
You can collect the booklet at our bulletin stands or church office, or download it here for group and individual reflection. There is also a guide called the “Pilgrim’s Pack” to help you plan and prepare for a pilgrimage to one of the Holy Doors at designated churches.
Check out all the resources online.
