Young Adults Awareness Event 2015
September 5, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Islands of Mercy in a Sea of Indifference
“every Christian community is called to go out of itself and to be engaged in the life of the greater society of which it is a part, especially with the poor and those who are far away. The Church is missionary by her very nature; she is not self-enclosed but sent out to every nation and people.
… how greatly I desire that all those places where the Church is present, especially our parishes and our communities, may become islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference!” ~ Pope Francis
An event for young adults (ages 19 to 35 years).
We invite you to join us on this journey of awareness and reflection on how we can live out our social mission in our society today.
We will share what Caritas Singapore and the various charity organisations are doing to help those in need and how you can be a part of it.
‘the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.’ [Micah 6:8]
