After a spirit-filled nine-day novena, during which invited priests celebrated Mass each night on the theme of I am Who I am, the Church of St Vincent de Paul held its annual feast day dinner on Oct 1.
The dinner, held at the Orchid Country Club, featured a variety of performances put on by various church ministries and neighbourhood groups.
Called SVDP’s Got Talent, the songs and dances were judged as if they were performances on the popular TV show, America’s Got Talent.
The highlight of the dinner however, was an auction of donated items such as rosaries. Proceeds of the auction went to the church’s funds.
Parishioners said they enjoyed the festivities while the priests said they were grateful to people for donating items for the auction.
