As an act of love and support for priests in the archdiocese, Catholics visiting the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd have been writing their prayer intentions and well-wishes for them on special “spiritual bouquet” cards.

These cards, which can be found outside the adoration room at the cathedral, encourage the faithful to dedicate special intentions for priests on their ordination anniversaries.

These include fasting, praying the Divine Mercy and attending Mass.

A list of priests celebrating their ordination anniversaries for each month is also displayed to allow the faithful to make their selection.

At the end of each month, the cards, which are placed in a box provided, are sent out to the priests.

This initiative was started on Good Shepherd Sunday, celebrated on April 22 this year, by the cathedral’s perpetual adoration ministry.

The cards are to “affirm the priests for their service and ministry to the archdiocese,” said rector Msgr Philip
Heng.

It is for them to know that the people are praying and supporting them, he added.
