People visiting the Catholic Centre at Waterloo Street when retrofitting finishes in June will be able to enjoy a meal at the Crossings Café.
About a dozen Catholics have come together to start the café at the encouragement of the Archdiocesan Land and Properties Singapore (ALPS).
Ms Jenny Teng, chairperson of the project, says the café will be operated as a social enterprise.
It will collaborate with Assumption Pathway School, a Catholic vocational institute, providing internship and employment opportunities to students and graduates of the school.
“All profits from the café will go to charitable causes,” said Ms Teng.
The café will be located on the ground floor of 55 Waterloo St, next to the Church of Sts Peter and Paul. It can seat about 60 people. The menu is expected to be a mix of local and Western dishes.
“We are looking for signature dishes based on recipes contributed by the Catholic community,” said Mr Anthony Wong, vice-chairman of the venture.
