SIC Says 'NO' to Single-Use Items

“Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to cultivate and keep it.” - Genesis 2:15

Answering this Christian call and Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment titled “Laudato Si – On Care for Our Common Home”, the St Ignatius Church (SIC) Parish Integral Human Development Ministry (PIHDM) Green Team was inspired to build an “Upcycled Christmas Tree”. With a month to Christmas, the team took on a mammoth task to put together a Christmas tree made from 100% recycled materials.

This included first obtaining the blessings of SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD, collecting recyclable materials from SIC parishioners, designing and crafting the tree’s decorations and garnering other support needed. After many tireless days and nights, the strong support of key ministries and volunteer parishioners, we successfully managed to build a beautiful upcycled Christmas tree and a mixed-media Nativity scene positioned at the church entrance.

A video on the “Upcycled Christmas Tree” project and its objective was played during weekend Masses (English and Mandarin) and continuous efforts will be made to strengthen the spirit of “Caring for Our Common Home” amongst the SIC family. Special thanks to the Green Team members; Vincent Raj (who is also PIHDM Coordinator) and Jenny Seow who were instrumental in making the project a reality & getting the tree ready on time!
