Many Catholics treasure the sacrament of Reconciliation.

The peace of mind and soul which this sacrament imparts to us is one for which there is no substitute. It is a peace that flows from a certainty, rather than from an unsure hope, that our sins have been forgiven and that we are right with God.

Our CSM priests will be available on the following days and times:

Monday and Tuesday (after evening EC at 6.30pm – 7.30pm)

Tuesday and Friday (7.15am – 8.15am)

Visits to the Columbarium

Visits to Columbarium

Register via email: csm.secretariat@catholic.org.sg

The Catechism says, “All who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven. The Church gives the name Purgatory to this final purification” (1030–1031).

Scripture tells us that our intercession helps them: Sacrifices were offered for the dead even though they may have sinned.”… so that the dead may be pardoned for their sin (2 Maccabees 12:46). In praying for the dead, there is a solidarity among members of God’s people, between the living and the dead.

Please register via email to the Parish Admin Office if you wish to visit the columbarium during the following times:

Saturdays: 1.30pm – 3.00pm

Sundays: 1.45pm – 4.00pm (updated opening hours as of 8 October 2020)

Columbarium is closed on weekdays and public holidays.

Prayer for the Dead

God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.

Amen.
