Since October last year, Praise@Work, a non-parishbased Catholic charismatic prayer group for young working adults, has been hard at work in preparing for a Catholic Workplace Ministry Conference that will take place on Saturday, Nov 12, at the RELC International Hotel on 30 Orange Grove Road, from 8am to 6pm. The one-day conference called "Christ@Work" is targeted at working adults who are interested in discovering God's purpose for them in being better workers of Christ in their workplace through the decisions that they make and the people they encounter. It is especially for young working adults within the Catholic community who are not already actively living out their faith.

The event is to encourage working individuals who have lost traction with the Church after entering the workforce to participate more fully in the Church. As individuals facing struggles in their workplace and creating a balance between work and church activities, the members of the group wanted more teachings on such issues and a platform for them to hear from those who have been successfully living out their faith

experiences in their working place.

As such, the group has gathered a list of illustrious Catholics to share their experiences in the upcoming conference. These include Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers; John Ooi (vicepresident of the Family Life

Society and head of the Business Excellence Unit at the Singapore Polytechnic); Peter Ng Kok Song

(Managing Director of the Government Investment Corporation (GIC) and founding chairman of the Singapore International Monetary Exchange (SIMEX) from 1983-87); Mathew Jacob (Regional Director of

Microsoft Asia Pacific); Gerard Ee (President of the National Council of Social Service and interim chairman and acting CEO of National Kidney Foundation).

There will also be two discussions on the topics "DoFaith and Work Mix?" and "His Work In The Community" moderated by Helen Yeo (Managing Director of Rodyk & Davidson) and Willie Cheng

(Convenor of the Archdiocese Crisis Coordination Team (ACCT) and former Country Managing

Director of Accenture).

Participation at the conference will cost $50 per participant, which is inclusive of lunch and tea-breaks.

No preparation is needed before going for the event. However, participants can expect to take away a greater awareness and practical steps that will help them to live out a more vibrant faith at the workplace.
