SINGAPORE – The Daughters of St. Paul Sisters will be selling books and religious items at the Jurong Point mall until Dec 20.
Opened from 11.00am-9.00pm daily except Mondays, the kiosk is located on level one. Prices for books range from $3-$20, and 40 cents-$100 for religious items and articles.
This is the seventh year that the Sisters have opened a temporary stall in a shopping mall (photo). Sister Lynette Chan said the Sisters were not “doing a business, but a mission”.
“We’re different from the other stores. We don’t sell commercialised items. People who are looking for God or to satisfy their spiritual needs come to this store and get something. But if they are shopping for a bag or clothes, they cannot find them here,” she added.
“We have prayer books for those encountering difficulty in prayer and formation books for those struggling with emotional issues so that they could understand themselves and God.”
