Raising Mass Capacities
Are you Vaccinated?

Our Church of St Michael is planning to have specific masses where there are more than 50 persons if there are enough vaccinated or taken the PET which is valid for 24 hours only. This PET test cost $50 or more.

Currently, persons are deemed to have completed their Covid-19 vaccinations 14 days after they received their second dose. The vaccinations refer only to Pfizer or Moderna jabs.

Other vaccinations for example the Sinovac vaccine is not under this list. This is in keeping with the prevailing MOH guidelines for vaccines.

Please do let us know whether you have been vaccinated twice and completed 14 days after 2nd vaccination. This is to allow us to plan the number of masses we can start for more than 50 persons. Please do send us a screenshot of your inoculation shot or on your TraceTogether App the vaccination. Please send to csm.admin@catholic.org.sg together with your name and contact number.

Thank you.

Authentic Discipleship

We are all called to be disciples of Jesus, though sometimes, it feels like we are just his fans, much like the crowd in a football stadium. We merely admire Jesus but are not ready to take up the cross and follow him. Come away, reflect and pray in this Authentic Discipleship retreat for the freedom and courage to be true disciples of Jesus.

Love, Sex & Marriage

“Ethics of Love, Sex & Marriage”
Starting 1 July 2021 (Thursdays)
7.30pm
By Rev Fr David Garcia, O.P.

What sexual behaviours does the Church consider immoral? Is pre-marital sex permissible? Should homosexual people be able to marry?

Why is there great discrepancy between traditional Christian morality and contemporary culture on sexuality? Can the Church impose its views on society at large? Who decides?

Let us explore these questions and much more in Module 4 of My Personal Moral Compass (MPMC) on Ethics of Love, Sex and Marriage!

Module 4 will start on 01 July 2021 and will be held weekly on Thursdays over Zoom live at 7:30 pm for seven weeks.
