SINGAPORE – Beneficiaries and volunteers of Caritas Singapore’s member organisations will be presenting ‘Social Mission Alive!’ on Saturday Aug 22 at the University Cultural Centre.
The event, which starts at 5.15pm, highlights the Church’s social teachings brought to life in the good works of Catholic individuals and charity organisations. Some of these include building a home for disaster-stricken residents of Indonesia’s Aceh province, and serving home-cooked hot meals to migrants living in Singapore.
The evening’s programme includes a talk by Monsignor Eugene Vaz on “The Gift of Self”, prayer and spiritual reflection, and testimonies of hope and love, presented through music, song, dance, performances, and video presentations by those who have given of themselves in service, and those who have received and whose lives have been transformed through these acts of love.
The four-hour event is open to all who have been curious about mission work, or wish to put their faith into action. Also invited are those who would like to take their service in church ministries to the next level. It promises to be a life-changing experience.
‘Social Mission Alive’ will be held at the University Cultural Centre (UCC) Hall in the National University of Singapore (50 Kent Ridge Crescent, Singapore 119279). Free shuttle bus service will be available to and from UCC to Dover MRT station every 15 minutes from 4.15-5.00pm and 8.30-9.30pm.
The cost is $12 per participant. A discount of $4 per participant will be given for groups of 30 or more. Tickets are complimentary for priests and religious. Registration forms and more information are available at www.caritas-singapore.org
