Lecturers from the Catholic Theological Institute of Singapore and St Francis Xavier Major Seminary pledge their adherence to teaching the faith responsibly during a Mass on Jan 12.

The Catholic Theological Institute of Singapore (CTIS) and St Francis Xavier Major Seminary celebrated their 2017 Inauguration Mass on Jan 12. The annual mass marks the beginning of the academic year for the two entities.

In his homily, CTIS rector Fr James Yeo stressed the necessity for all the baptised to engage the world with a rational faith. He said that dialogue is an indispensable skill for modern Christian disciples in a religiously plural society, and this would not be possible without good intellectual formation.

The Mass, held at the Catholic Centre on Waterloo St, also saw the CTIS and seminary lecturers present pledging their adherence to teaching the faith responsibly as guided by the Church magisterium.

About 130 members of the Catholic academic community attended the Mass, comprising students, seminarians, Religious, lecturers, board members and staff of CTIS and the seminary.
