Support the Catholic Church of Singapore through “Gift”
The Catholic Foundation is renewing its appeal for the Giving in Faith and Thankfulness (Gift) campaign, to encourage all Catholics to make a regular contribution 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. This is so that the Church may continue growing for generations to come.

Flyers and envelopes with more information are available in the parish to make your pledge. Or visit gift.catholicfoundation.sg to donate online or find out more.
