NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS (OCT/NOV)

Dear Friends of Caritas Singapore,

Peace be with you.

A big thank you to all for making Ignitus! Social Mission with Love possible. If you have missed the event, you can now access the videos here.

On 5 September, the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, who is more affectionately known as Mother Teresa. Saint Teresa of Calcutta lived a life totally dedicated to serving the poor amongst the poorest and is one of the patron saints of Caritas Internationalis.

As we remember her and continue to celebrate 200 years of Catholicism in Singapore, let us be reminded that everyone is called to do acts of charity to alleviate poverty and to foster stability and peace.

This month, we are excited to share with you the latest news and updates and we look forward to you joining us as we continue our work to reach out to the vulnerable among us.
