15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

14/15 JULY 2018 • VOL. 28

Congratulations to All Our Commissioned Lectors!

The Lector Ministry is important to the life of the Church, for they proclaim God’s living word. Do pray for our lectors as they are called to proclaim the word of God in the assembled community of God’s people and in so doing, they share in the Church’s mission to preach the Good News to all peoples. Read more on Parish Buzz Section below.

“I am humbled to be called to proclaim the word. I never imagined myself doing this. I was called by a friend who said I should consider joining the lectors after reading a passage as a favour for her at the RCIA at the Church of St Bernadette. That seed was planted then as it took me a few more years before I joined the lectors at CDM”

– Lector, Benedict Lim.

“I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, He will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’; rather He will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?’ “ – Mother Teresa

The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (16 July)

The feast was first instituted in the late 14th century in commemoration of the approval of the rule of the Carmelite Order a hundred years earlier. Although there is no historical evidence for the pre-Christian Carmelite community, references in the 12th century record a community of monks on the holy mountain. Despite continual difficulties, the community built a monastery and church dedicated to the Virgin Mary on Mount Carmel in 1263.The spread of the Carmelites in Europe is largely attributable to the work of Saint Simon Stock (1247-1265). The Carmelite Order was formally approved in 1274 at the Council of Lyon.
