Guiding our young children to experience the mystery of God’s love is what we can do best for them and one of the most important ways is through Catechism.

  • Nurture them to become God-fearing , independent, responsible, mature and skillful young adults
  • Prepare them to be witnesses and disciples of Christ in proclaiming the Word of God

Starting: 8 November 2020, Sunday

Registration closes: 7 December 2020, Saturday

Kindly prepare a copy of the student’s Birth Certificate and Baptism Certificate to be submitted with the registration at https://stmichael.churchsys.info/catechism-registration-form

Go, therefore, make disciples of all the nations; baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you– MT 28:19-20

Home Bound Communion

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

There are quite a number of home bound parishioners in need of home communion service.

We are hampered by a lack of parishioners coming forward to offer this service.

Giving communion to the home bound is our way of reaching out to those in need.

If you are not involved in the parish so far, can you give this some thought. We are only limited by your generosity in this area.

Jesus for Everyone

Stay awake, because you do not know when the master of the house is coming – Mark 13:33-37

Sacrament of Reconcilation

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

Sacrament of Reconciliation

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:

Mondays (7.15pm to 8.15pm)

Wednesdays (7.15am to 8.15am)

Fridays (7.15am to 8.15am & 7.15pm to 8.15pm)

Visits to Columbarium

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)

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.
