The Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) is aiming to raise $200,000 for the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd’s building restoration fund through a charity golf event. It is slated to take place at Tanah Merah Country Club on Oct 3, from 1.15pm.
The golf flights are priced at $3,000, $5,000 & $10,000 (lunch and dinner included). The guest-of-honour is Mr Lim Boon Heng, chairman of Temasek Holdings.
The golf event is part of the church’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, themed Sixty Years of God’s Grace, We are the Church – Journeying Together Towards Eternity.
The ongoing celebrations kicked off with a Family Day in May, and will culminate with a Gala Dinner at Orchid Country Club on Dec 8. Past events include a Food and Fun Fair, Feast Day Novena and Triduum.
When asked why the parish decided to raise funds for the cathedral, parish priest Fr Adrian Yeo said, “We need to think of the wider Church. Our Mother Church is in need of financial support for its building fund. This is a good opportunity for us to step forward.”
To register for the charity golf, contact the parish office at 6288 9140 (ask for Marie). Closing date: Sept 13.
