Last Saturday, more than 300 parishioners attended our first Day of Recollection (DOR) for 2019. Father Damian led us through the Holy Hour and reflection on the Sunday’s readings. This was followed by Fr Romeo’s sharing on Discipleship, which is the key ingredient for a vibrant, evangelistic and missionary church. Fr Damien walked through the events happening from Ash Wednesday to Pentecost; and the upcoming parish upgrading work. To wrap up, the PPC (Parish Pastoral Care) chairman, Andrew Khng presented an overview of our parish’s 10th-anniversary celebration next year. One of the missions that we are undertaking is Laudato Si, “Praise be to you”, which focuses on sustainability, protecting and caring for Earth, our common home.
CDM’s 3-Year Plan: A Call to Discipleship
Discipleship means “follower” and this is what God has called unto us to be. It is an action we take by responding positively to God’s calling. To be a disciple is to follow what Jesus does, to love as He loves and to serve as He serves. Our parish 3-Year Plan aims to build and grow this through stages – Formation of Discipleship (2019), Celebration of Fellowship (2020) and Mission towards Service (2021).
Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks!
