A year since the Catholic Foundation first launched the GIFT (Giving in Faith & Thankfulness) campaign, over $16 million has been raised to support the growth of the Catholic Church in Singapore.
On 5 December 2017, a thanksgiving Mass was held for the support garnered through the campaign. Over 400 participants, ranging from donors to volunteers, and representatives of various archdiocesan organisations, gathered for the celebration held at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd.
“We have gathered to praise and thank God for so many people who believe in our dream to build a more vibrant, missionary, and evangelistic Church,” Archbishop William Goh said during his homily.
The Bishop of Chiang Mai, along with priests, Religious and laypeople from 10 Thai dioceses were in Singapore recently to experience some of the catechetical practices here.
According to Bishop Francis Xavier Vira Arpondratana, the aim of the Nov 30-Dec 3 visit was to expose more Thai Church workers to how catechesis is done in a nearby diocese.
A smaller delegation from Thailand had visited Singapore in 2005.
