Announcement Slide for Young Stewards Conference

Young Stewards Conference 2022
29 Oct 2022 Saturday 
10.30am – 3.30pm
SFX Major Seminary Building, Upper Bukit Timah  

Catholic Foundation will be organising this year’s Young Stewards Conference on 29th October 2022. We are inviting speakers and involving young adults from all over the archdiocese to discuss and share about various relevant issues that young working adults face, focusing on the theme of Christian Stewardship.

Through this event, the Foundation hopes to build a spirit of gratitude and responsibility for God’s gifts among young adults, and to see giving of themselves with their time, talents or treasures as the call of being a Christian Steward.

Amidst the ongoing archdiocesan synodal discernment process and the recent archdiocesan assembly, we as the lay faithful have been entrusted and empowered by the Church to use our gifts to contribute to her life and be co-responsible for her.

In addition, Cardinal William Goh’s recent elevation to the Cardinalate is a testament to the work of the Holy Spirit. We as the local Church have been empowered for greater work for God’s glory.

This conference invites young adults to respond to this call: To speak on important issues regarding our faith and provide a platform for us to connect, collaborate and co-create. We will explore in greater depth, on what it means to steward our time, talents and treasures for the Kingdom of God.

You can find more details about the event programme, speakers and their bios at: catholicfoundation.sg/young-stewards-conference-2022

We look forward to seeing you and your community at this year’s conference!
