gotongroyonggroup1

Volunteers came even before the official start time of 7.30 am on Monday 11 December 2017 to help clean St Ignatius Church (SIC) in preparation for Christmas. This year's cleaning was done mostly outside of the church building as the building interior is spick & span after several weekly cleanings during and right after completion of renovations recently. SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD, Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD and Brother Joseph Lim CDD joined parishioners to clear clogged drains, sweep away leaves, pull down branches – and clear rubbish & other unsightly materials. Fr Francis Ng CDD also dropped by to chat with parishioners & lend moral support. With the good turnout comprising senior citizens, middle-aged, youths as well as a few children, the exercise was completed by 12.30 pm.

After the 8.45 am Mass on the First Sunday of Advent on 3 December 2017, St Ignatius Church (SIC) Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD and Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD unveiled the SIC Parish Pastoral Theme for the next two years. Displayed in five languages, the theme in English is For the Greater Glory of God which is the translation of ad majorem Dei gloriam – the Latin motto of the Society of Jesus founded by St Ignatius of Loyola who is the patron saint of SIC.

by Shaun Chan, RCIA Facilitator 

The start of the Season of Advent in St Ignatius Church (SIC) on 3 December 2017 coincided with the welcoming of the new batch of catechumens into the community. At the 8.45 am Mass, celebrant Fr Lawrence Ng CDD invited the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) enquirers to come into the church after the sounds of "knocking of the church door" were heard. A total of 43 enquirers with their respective sponsors then filed in to attend the Rite of Acceptance into the Order of Catechumens. The Rites included welcoming, signing of the cross on the forehead as well as presentation of crucifixes. All these signified a commitment from the entire church community to accept and share in the growth in faith, and work towards giving these new members love, guidance and prayers.

Fr Lawrence reiterated that although these catechumens cannot participate fully in the Lord’s Eucharist, they should stay with the community as a sign of hope that all God’s children will eat and drink with the Lord. After Mass, the catechumens, their family members and sponsors were invited to join in a breakfast welcoming tea reception initiated by BECCOT (Basic Ecclesial Communities Coordinating Team) during which the new faces had the opportunity to mingle with the larger church community.

SSS Completes Another Module

bw2017group

Forty two participants received certificates for attending at least four out of five sessions of A Biblical Walk Through the Mass: Understanding What We Say & Do in the Liturgy module which ended on 27 November 2017. Conducted by SIC Scripture Study (SSS) over five sessions, the study was also attended by six SSS facilitators and led by 12 other facilitators. During each session, attendees watched a video presentation by theologian, author & scholar Dr Edward Sri followed by group sharing which lasted for slightly over an hour each time.

There was a good mix of parishioners from the newly-baptised to mature Catholics for this module which is the shortest conducted by SSS. Amongst other aspects, attendees learnt the biblical background to the words, prayers & gestures experienced in the Liturgy and discovered how the Mass is a ‘true re-presentation’ of Christ’s redeeming sacrifice on the Cross. This marked the second time the module was conducted, the first time was in 2015.
