SINGAPORE – It was a day of fun and fellowship on June 6, as 12 parishes with a total of 31 teams battled it out in futsal courts at 8 Mattar Road for one goal – to bring home the trophy.

Before the event began, Archbishop William Goh addressed the servers and insisted that the results of the game did not matter.

Instead, he told the participants that what mattered most was enjoying themselves and the game.

Archbishop Goh then launched the event by taking the first kick of the day.

Unlike previous Archbishop’s Cups, this year’s competition was unique.

Fathers played against each other, and even football legend, Mr David Lee, could not resist getting into the game.

However, the spotlight of the day’s event was on the altar servers.
 
They were grouped into three age groups – Under 12, Under 16 and Under 19.

Everyone played their hearts out and there were times where emotions ran high.

Some of the altar servers were seen crying tears of joy after winning their game and their efforts showed just how much training they put in prior to the cup.

But in the end, there could only be one winner.

For the Under 12 category, servers from the Church of Risen Christ went home champions.

For the Under 16, Under 19, and the Dads categories, Queen of Peace church dominated, bagging the first place in each group.

Congratulations to the winners!
