NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS (NOV/DEC)

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Dear Friends of Caritas Singapore,

Peace be with you.

During World Mission Sunday this year, we are reminded by Archbishop William Goh that “we are living in a world where people face much discouragement because of loss of hope.”

May the following prayer extracted from the Collect of Mission Sunday Mass help us to live out our mission as God’s people.

“Almighty ever-living God, increase our faith, hope and charity,
and make us love what you command, so that we may merit what you promise.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.”
