O What a Community!
O’ what a night of oneness amongst the young and younger of the parish! The young were dancing with the younger, long lines of new friendships were forged in the “community dance” and spontaneous teams formed for “dragon scissors paper stone”, on 28 May 2018 at Kallang Riverside Park.
“How can we encourage everyone to get to know each other better as one church?” The Young Adults Community and Youth Ministry turned to a prayer- first approach. “For each meeting, we start with a rosary prayer before delving into what needs to be done. Although at times, I did panic from approaching deadlines! But I knew that everything would be okay because the Holy Spirit is guiding our teams. Through putting this event together we have also learnt to work with other ministries and even received insightful tips from Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SSVP)!” Daryl Stewart shared.
Those who were present could feel the spirit of oneness in many ways. As the night progressed, old and new songs filled the atmosphere while parishioners spontaneously joined Kevin in song, as he strummed away on his guitar.

Family Picnic By the Bay
Families turned up in full force for CSM’s Family Picnic by the bay at Bay East Garden on Vesak Day! There were 148 participants of all ages, including 30 of our brothers & sisters in Christ from the Chinese community.
The day was chockful of activities with a Treasure Walk, TABOO: Bible edition, family photo competition, Sing-along with Uncle Roland on the ukulele, origami-making with Fr John, and more!
It was a blessed day with wonderful weather, amazing company, and fellowship for all. The organising team, Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) went all out to chope a huge space beneath a bridge and ensured that everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Kudos to them for their tremendous efforts and love!
