Sunday School Orientation


by Michelle Nyanam, Sunday School Teacher

The Sunday School orientation held on Saturday 6 January 2018 at Costantini Community Centre was so much more than any of us could have expected. Our speaker for the day, SIC Assistant Parist Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD, was truly annointed as each of us returned home with a better understanding and a renewed desire to serve. The two bible verses that resounded with me were Mark 10:45 For the Son of man also came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many and Ephesians 6:7 rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to men.


The former is a clear indication that the centre of Catholic servanthood is self sacrifice whilst the latter is a much needed reminder that the foundation of ministry is built on Our Lord Jesus Christ. Fr Lawrence ended the day with a quote by American pastor and author Bill Johnson that acted as a summation of all that we had received that day: "Royalty is my identity. Servanthood is my assignment. Intimacy with God is my life source." Each of us left feeling appreciated, stirred and enthusiastic for more than just the catechesis ministry which we are called to, but rather the ministry of our lives.
