Parish Day of Corporal Works of Mercy

Those who really wish to give glory to God by their lives, who truly long to grow in holiness, are called to be single-minded and tenacious in their practice of the works of mercy. (GE #107)
A day for us to reach out and get personally involved by giving and sharing our blessings, gifts & talents from God with “the hungry, thirsty, stranger, naked, sick and those in prison.”

Join any of these activities:
1) Intercessory Prayers in SVDP
2) Bring cheer to Ju Eng home senior residents
3) Gear up for a Day of Fun with children from Jamiyah Children’s Home
4) Take our retired priests and nuns to Gardens by the Bay!
Save the date! More information on program details on the poster!

Don’t miss this opportunity to extend mercy to the least of our brothers! Our Lord promises us that we will encounter Him in them as He says, “In so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine,
you did it to me” -Matthew 25:40

Introduction to Christian Meditation

Do you struggle with prayer? Frustrated with the lack of time or distractions getting in the way?
Strengthen, deepen, and encourage your prayer life with Christian Meditation. These 4 one-hourly sessions conducted by the World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM) teach meditation as a profound spiritual practice to find the center of our being and experience God as the great I AM. Amidst all the noise, distraction and busyness of our daily lives, we are in urgent need to be rooted in the centre of our being where the Spirit of God dwells.

“Values make Vices uncomfortable”

SVDP’s family life ministry will be conducting its very first enrichment sessions for our parish. These 4 sessions touch on the four basic values of Gratitude, Forgiveness, Faith and Love and how to inculcate them within the family.
We will get a better understanding of these values based on scripture, testimonies, sharing in small groups and other engaging activities that you will enjoy.
The sessions are open to all parents, young and old, singles, those who are planning to get married and start a family. All are welcome!

Solemnity of Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi is traditionally celebrated with a grand procession.
This year on June 23, the Church of Saint Vincent de Paul decided to conduct the procession for the first time around the church compound as there was a desire between the priests to bring this tradition back.
Said Father John Joseph Fenelon, Assistant Parish Priest, “Public reverence and homage to the Body and Blood of Christ is a form of evangelisation” and an evangelistic spirit is what we are actively trying to inculcate within our parish.
The procession helped parishioners, who thronged the compound, to meditate on the gift of the Eucharist and the real presence of the Christ in the Blessed sacrament.
They were also able to reflect on whether they truly believe Jesus to be present in the Consecrated Host.

Eucharistic Talk

Praise God for the large turnout we had for the Eucharistic talk on Wednesday, 5th of June!

Father JJ delved deeply into the celebration of the Eucharist, with attendees of the talk coming away with a deeper appreciation of the Mass. From understanding the differences between Solemnities, Feasts and Memorials, to the different prayers spoken during the Mass, the Eucharistic talk helped enlighten many to understand basic yet profound questions like, “Why do Catholics go for mass?”

Disciples Assemble! (A night for young people)

The Youth of SVDP gathered as ONE at our first “Disciples Assemble” event for a time of Praise and Worship, spiritual input by Father JJ and Eucharistic Adoration. It was a truly blessed night with our youth proclaiming their desire to claim the intimate love that Jesus lavishes on us, to see him knocking at the door of our hearts, eager to simply sit and dine with us.

Disciples Assemble will be held next on: Date: 17th August Time: 7pm- 10pm Venue: Church or St. Vincent de Paul (Room 03-02) ALL YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS ARE WELCOME! Let us continue together, drawing strength from one another, to grow in holiness and to live a life a joy and peace promised to us by our heavenly Father!

Parish Day of Recollection

We gathered as a Parish family on the 1st of May to reflect upon these questions together with the team from the Institute of World Evangelisation. Here, speakers shared with us down-to-earth and practical ways we can live out our unique and personal call to holiness.

Parishioners who attended were privy to many testimonies and sharings that touched upon the Pope’s Apostolic Exhortation, “Gaudete Et Exsultate” (Call to Holiness). Many were moved and edified to live out their unique call to holiness in their own little ways! Photos/Videos
