SINGAPORE – It has been 10 years since Catholic Prayer Society (CPS) has been organising weekly lunch-time Masses at Suntec City; the occasion was celebrated on Tuesday Sep 15.
The weekly Tuesday lunch-time masses are held at the foyer of the Rock Auditorium, Level Three of Suntec City Tower Four (Mall area). Approximately 200 people in total attend the Masses at 12.15pm and 1.15pm. CPS hopes more Catholics will attend these lunch-time, or workplace, Masses.
Olivia Tay, a CPS Suntec team member, said, “The Mass energises us spiritually and brings God’s presence into our awareness in the midst of our work.”
The workplace Mass is the combined effort of about 60 volunteers comprising commentators, lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, choir members, and those running the reception, amongst others.
In the 10 years, the graces that flowed to the people of God for being His instruments in serving with generosity is “mind-blowing”, said CPS Spiritual Director Father Terence Pereira.
Meanwhile, an offshoot of the CPS Suntec activities is a small group of members who meet usually once a week at lunch-time for sharing. They are currently discussing the Church’s social teachings.
Other CPS lunch-time Mass services are held at Jurong East, Outram, Raffles, Orchard and Shenton. For Mass timings, visit www.cps.org.sg/centres/mass.php (Written with information from CPS.)
