More than 300 participants attended the full-day Christ@Work Conference at Catholic Junior College on Nov 30.
The conference, which had the theme, The Summons – Rise of the Apostles, was organised by the Catholic Business Network and Praise@Work Charismatic group.
It aimed to examine the roles Catholics play in being true faith witnesses in the marketplace.
Keynote speaker Hector Molina, a lay US Catholic apologist and international speaker, spoke on how Christ has summoned people to be His modern day apostles.
In addition, several successful corporate leaders and other speakers and panellists spent the day with participants, sharing their experiences and exchanging knowledge.
The speakers included money broker and bank trader Tony See, practising litigation partner in private legal practice and Member of Parliament Christopher De Souza, and visually handicapped trainer and motivational speaker Reena Rajasvari.
Ms Celina Lin and Ms Roselie Chia, both professionally trained spiritual directors from the Kingsmead Centre for Ignatian Spirituality and Counselling, also led participants through a guided reflection on reconnecting with their innermost being and functioning better within a complex marketplace.
Archbishop William Goh celebrated Mass at the end of the event.
