In order to be good Christian leaders, one must have “friendship with Jesus, and an intimacy with God”, said Archbishop William Goh during the annual Combined Polytechnics Commissioning Mass.

“We cannot live a meaningful life unless we live it in passion,” he told the young students gathered for the May 14 celebration at the Singapore Polytechnic.

He encouraged those present – members of the polytechnic Catholic students societies – to use their gifts from God and to find their vocations in life.

The Commissioning Mass is held annually to induct the incoming Executive Committees (ExCo) of the various societies. This year, 11 ExCo members were commissioned, two in absentia, from Singapore Polytechnic, Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Nanyang Polytechnic.
