Parishioners of St Ignatius Church (SIC) attending the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord at 8.45 am on 8 January were able to witness the installation of Fr Andrew Wong, CDD as Parish Priest of SIC. His Grace Archbishop Julian Leow entrusted Fr Andrew with the keys of the parish church and exhorted him to always serve the faithful of SIC with zeal, fidelity and sincere devotion. After the homily by Archbishop Julian, Parish Pastoral Council chairman Lourdes Abishegam read aloud the letter of appointment after which Fr Andrew renewed the promises he made at his priestly ordination. Fr Andrew has been serving as Parish Priest of SIC since 1 July 2016. SIC Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng, CDD and Fr Francis Ng, CDD were the concelebrants at the Mass.
After Mass, a video on consecrated life in the Catholic Church titled For All My Life was screened at the Rooftop of Costantini Community Centre attended by Archbishop Julian, Fr Andrew, other religious and some 300 parishioners of whom half comprise the youth of SIC. There was also a Question & Answer forum where a panel which included Archbishop Julian addressed numerous queries.
