A Christmas present that helps loved ones get closer to God or enhance their marital relationship is surely a blessing.

Cenacle Sisters*
The Cenacle Sisters dedicate themselves towards giving retreats, spiritual direction, pastoral counselling, catechesis and other spiritual formation programmes.

The Cenacle Sisters in Singapore also need a convent of their own to reside in and accommodate small groups for spiritual formation.

Daughters of St Paul (FSP)*

The Sisters use every available means of communication to spread the Gospel and promote the dignity of all peoples. They operate from a temporary convent in Jurong West and serve the Catholic community in parishes and schools. They also manage the bookshop at the Church of the Risen Christ as part of their media ministry.

The most pressing need of the Sisters is to raise enough funds to acquire a new convent in order to continue staying in Singapore and carry on their media ministry.
