Song For Vincent Newsletter

Song for Vincent is the official newsletter of St. Vincent de Paul Church, Singapore.

Song for Vincent is written by a talented team of individuals who take time out of their busy lives to read, reasearch and write these articles, all with the aim of bringing God’s Word closer to us.

Our Latest Issue

ISSUE #35
In our latest edition of Song for Vincent, we cover the welcoming of our newly baptised Catholics into our parish – two of whom share their testimonials about their experience. We also take a look at what comes after Easter with eight quotes from Pope Francis to inspire us to live as Easter people while another article examines why the renewal of our baptismal promises at Easter is so important. We wish you Happy Reading!
