“This is the golden age of the Catholic Church in Singapore where renewal and revival are happening,” said Fr Simon Pereira.
“People are connecting with each other … we’re getting there,” said the Charismatic Redemptorist priest at the Pentecost Rally held at Church of Christ the King on June 12.
About 1,000 people attended the rally which started with a lively praise-and-worship session led by youths.
In his address to the crowd, Fr Pereira spoke of how the Holy Spirit leads people to renewal, conversion and empowerment.
He also quoted from the Early Church Fathers such as St Cyril of Alexandria and St Basil the Great on renewal in the Holy Spirit.
“We should put away our old self and be utterly transformed and launched on a new way of holy living,” said Fr Pereira, quoting St Cyril.
Prayer teams from the various parish Charismatic groups then prayed over people in the congregation.
During the Mass which followed, Fr Pereira urged the crowd to “share the marvels of God with others”.
