Support the Catholic Church of Singapore through “Gift”
The Catholic Foundation has launched the Giving in Faith and Thankfulness (Gift) campaign to encourage and empower regular individuals to contribute financially to the Archdiocese.
Resources are needed to fund the many organisations in the archdiocese involved in families, youth, evangelisation, and several building projects, among other initiatives. These building projects include a retirement home for priests, a seminary, and an archdiocesan hub.
Right now, there is a projected shortfall of S$238 million for the next 7 years. Every Catholic in Singapore is called to pledge a regular monthly contribution to the archdiocese, so that the Church may continue growing for generations to come.
Appeal booklets, flyers and envelopes are available in the parish to make your pledge. Or visit gift.catholicfoundation.sg to donate online or find out more.
Mass for the Sick
There will be a Mass with Anointing of the Sick this Sunday at 3pm.
Parishioners with loved ones who are sick, as well as their caregivers, are encouraged to be present with them at the Mass, that they may receive healing, peace, strength and courage from God.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also available half an hour before Mass.
Sunday School Mass and Registration of New Students
Registration of new students for Sunday Catechism classes will be held on 27 Nov and 4 Dec 2016, at the canteen, after the 8.30am and 10.30am Masses.
For registration, submit a copy of your child’s baptism certificate.
Classes run for those from Foundation 2 (K2) to Level 10 (Sec 4) on every Sunday (except June and December school holidays) from 10am to 11.30am/
We are also appealing for parent volunteers to help in the classes on Sacraments, not as catechists, but in the administrative aspect. Find out more at the registration desk.

The Office for the New Evangelisation has produced a booklet of reflections for the season of Advent in English, Mandarin and Tamil. The theme this new liturgical year is “The Pilgrim Community”.
Please take a copy of the booklet for your family or church community. You may also find the English copy online here.
