Special Baptism & First Holy Communion


Three boys and three girls – including three siblings – were baptised into the Catholic Church on Sunday 1 October 2017. Three of them then joined five others to receive their First Holy Communion (FHC) at the 6 pm Mass. This group comprised children who attended catechism class under the special programme conducted by the St Ignatius Church (SIC) Sunday school and their siblings. SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD was the celebrant at the baptism rite which began at 4.45 pm and gave them their First Holy Communion witnessed by parents, godparents and friends.


On being asked as to how she felt, Gwendolyn Lim (one of the siblings who was baptised & received her FHC) had a short & sweet response: Good! It was certainly a memorable day for the Lim family as besides Gwendolyn, her brothers Jayden and Aaron were also baptised just a few months after their father Jonathan was received into the Church during the Easter Vigil. 



Earlier on at the 11.15 am Mandarin Mass, 17 girls and six boys received First Holy Communion from Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD who was the main celebrant and Fr Andrew. Fr Thomas Koo CDD and Fr Andrew were the concelebrants.
