Who are you to others? Who are you to yourself? Are you satisfied with the answers?
More importantly, do you know who God says you are?
Participants of a recent dance workshop, TranscenDANCE, were invited to ponder upon these questions on their identity.
Connecting to God through making a mosaic art piece.

The Church of the Transfiguration in Punggol Central is certainly not the usual place to attract foreign workers on their day off. But on Sept 23, it was a special day for these foreigners as they turned up in force to celebrate this year’s Migrant Sunday Mass.
Celebrated by Archbishop William Goh, the Mass and the ensuing event were no less colourful than previous years.
Before Mass began, parish priest Father Joachim Chang welcomed representatives from various Catholic migrant communities, each bearing symbolic gifts relating to their culture.
