Pastoral Programme
I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ , or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day.

No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since "no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord".

The Lord does not disappoint those who take this risk; whenever we take a step towards Jesus, we come to realize that he is already there, waiting for us with open arms.

The Joy of the Gospel

The Bible Channel


From October to December 2015, we focus on the second Channel - the Bible.


If we attend weekly Mass and do nothing else, we are spending as little as less than 1% of our time each week with God. We need to meet with Him daily and to spend a lot more time with Him if we truly want God to make a difference in our lives.


Reading the Bible is an excellent way of encountering Jesus and allowing His joy to be constantly born anew in us. In the second Channel, from Oct to Dec 2015, we make a renewed effort to overcome our inertia of opening the Bible and to cultivate a lifelong habit to read, to meditate and to pray God's Words daily.


The Bible Channel is brought to you by the Lectors & Commentators ministry.
