Catholic archdiocese app launched
The CatholicSG app is available on both iOS and Android platforms.
The archdiocese of Singapore has launched its first official mobile app called CatholicSG.
The CatholicSG app was developed as an all-in-one app tool for the New Evangelisation. It is designed to help Catholics in Singapore retrieve information and content related to the faith in a fast and convenient manner on a mobile device, rather than accessing various websites or other apps.
What users can expect to get out of the app include daily Scripture reflections by Archbishop William Goh, the nearest venue for Mass, and the day’s Mass readings and Divine Office prayers. Content of Catholic videos and photos are also available in the app.
Other features include the latest notices from the archdiocese, news feed from CatholicNews as well as an updated archdiocesan directory.
Besides being functional in providing information, the app also has a remind function that prompts users when and what to pray.
Some users shared their thoughts of the app.
“A great tool at your fingertips to help you live and grow in your faith!” said Mr Fabian Ang from the Church of Divine Mercy.
Mr Jasper Chan from the Church of St Francis of Assisi said, “I really like the scripture reflections because I do not feel as lost when reading the Bible.”
The app is available now on both iOS and Android platforms.
