The Caritas Singapore family works on the ground to serve the vulnerable and marginalised in our community regardless of race, religion or nationality. The people in need in our community include low-income families, youth-at-risk, the incarcerated, people with physical disabilities, and also people with mental health problems.
Contributions to Catholic Foundation are for the use of the Archdiocese of Singapore for the work of formation and evangelisation. They fund causes supported by the archbishop that are aligned to the vision of the archdiocese to build a more vibrant, evangelising and missionary Church. These include the operations of archdiocesan organisations, the upkeep and welfare of priests, and several infrastructural needs such as building projects, maintenance and land lease renewals.
