SINGAPORE - The priests of Church of St. Teresa and 112 parishioners (photo) made a pilgrimage to Melaka from Nov 25-26 to commemorate the 500th birth anniversary of St. Francis Xavier. They remembered the various events in the life of St. Francis Xavier - apostle of the East and patron of the missions - during visits to the churches of St. Francis Xavier, St. Peter, St. Mary, St. Theresa and at the burial site of St. Francis at St. Paul's Hill. 

The group also visited Ayer Salak Melaka to meet relatives of the late Father Stephen Lee, the builder and first parish priest of St. Teresa, and to celebrate Mass there for him and his relatives.
