Are you Spiritually Exhausted?

“Aren’t you, like me, hoping that some person, thing, or event will come along to give you that final feeling of inner well-being you desire? Don’t you often hope: ‘May this book, idea, course, trip, job, country or relationship fulfill my deepest desire.’

But as long as you are waiting for that mysterious moment you will go on running helter-skelter, always anxious and restless, always lustful and angry, never fully satisfied. You know that this is the compulsiveness that keeps us going and busy, but at the same time makes us wonder whether we are getting anywhere in the long run. This is the way to spiritual exhaustion and burn-out. This is the way to spiritual death.”

– Henri J.M. Nouwen, Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World

Our Story

“Upon this rock, I shall build my Church”

A journey back in time to see how far we’ve come from our humble beginning.

Reflections

“Lord, please take what little I have and multiply it for the sake of your people.”

Parish Buzz

Voices of Harmony

Last Sunday, parishioners were treated to true ‘voices of harmony’ in a concert which was a collaboration between the Vocalismo Choral Group (VCG) and CDM’s own San Pedro Calungsod Choir (SPCC). VCG is a celebrated ensemble from the Philippines, helmed by esteemed conductor/composer Lester Delgado. SPCC sings regularly at the Sunday 5.30pm Mass. This choir has evolved from humble beginnings to singing beautiful music both for church and outside church performances.

Thank you VCG and SPCC for your golden voices, and to the parishioners who have supported the concert! Photos are available on HERE.

Congratulations to Our Newly Baptised Babies!

DMA Tour to Novena Church • 5 Nov

About 37 of our Divine Mercy Apostolate members and their friends went for an ‘educational tour’ of Novena Church and got to understand the faith aspects behind the design of the new church.

Presentation of the Virgin Mary • 21 Nov

Our Lady’s magnificent preparation to be the Mother of Jesus Christ began with her Presentation in the Temple. We too should present ourselves before Our Lady, asking her to assist us in taking up the task of our sanctification, as the Holy Ghost did with her in the Temple of Jerusalem.
