The Serra Club of Singapore, which aims to promote priestly vocations, will hold a Eucharistic gathering for young people in July.
The Serra Eucharistic Congress 2011 for Youth will be held at Church of the Holy Cross auditorium from July 1 (Friday evening) to July 3 (Sunday). It is organised in conjunction with the club’s fifth anniversary celebration.
According to the organisers, the event is to foster a deeper love and appreciation of the Eucharist among Catholic youths. The congress will focus on purity and personal sanctification through the Eucharist, frequent Confession, adoration and praying of the rosary.
A special exhibition, titled Vatican International Exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles of the World, will also be held.
Two priests will be speaking at the congress.
One of them is Fr Antoine Thomas, who has conducted many youth retreats in the US, and who founded the worldwide Children’s Eucharistic Adoration movement.
The other is Fr Clement Machado, an exorcist-priest based in Rome. He has an international evangelisation ministry and has hosted a series of programmes on Vatican Radio and the US-based EWTN Global Catholic Network.
“We strongly believe this congress will bring tremendous benefits to our youth and young adults,” says Serra Club president Sean Yeo. “Through this congress, we pray that our youth will become important and effective spheres of influence in society and the world through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.”
The congress is open to youths aged 15 and above. Registration fee: $30 per person. More information and the registration form can be found at http://www.serrasingapore.org/SEC2011.html
