Starting next weekend, we will also be embarking on a new initiative for Advent called “Love Thy Neighbour”. We want to share the joy of Christmas to our neighbours around our parish. We aim to distribute some 800 hand drawn Christmas cards to households in the vicinity to wish them Merry Christmas, and we need your help to decorate these cards!

Blank cards will be distributed next week, do take some home, be creative and draw “Merry Christmas” on the cards with your children as a family event, and bring the cards back to us when you are done. 

You can also decorate the cards at the table we will set up outside the Parish office while waiting for your meeting, your friends etc.

The Promise

From the beginning, God our Father has a plan.

He knows each of us by name. He has made us part of His family. 

What is the meaning of Christmas? 

Do you know the full grandeur of your life?

Will you be part of His story?

The Promise. Saturday, 10 December 2022. 7 to 10 pm, starting with the Eucharist at 7 pm.

World AIDS Day (WAD) – 1 December

World AIDS Day (WAD) takes place on 1 December each year. It is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.

This year, we celebrate World AIDS Day on Sunday 27 November 2022.  We invite all Catholics to come together to pray for HIV/AIDS sufferers.

Every year there are about 250 new cases reported in Singapore.  There are still people who do not take precautions to protect themselves and others.  And sadly, the stigma and discrimination remain a reality for many people living with the condition.

World AIDS Day is important because it reminds us that HIV has not gone away.  There is still a vital need to increase awareness and fight prejudice.

World AIDS Day is an opportunity for us to show solidarity with the millions of people living with HIV worldwide.  World AIDS Day may be once a year, but you can still support people living with HIV/AIDS all year round.
