Walking with the Poor
Message from our Parish Priest
This year is the Diamond Jubilee of the Church of St. Ignatius in Singapore. If you have seen our Parish Feast Day video, you will know that our Parish has an exciting line-up of events to celebrate this Jubilee all the way until end July 2021.
Yet, what is a Jubilee celebration really about?
In Leviticus 25, we are reminded that the Jubilee is a year of mercy and justice. In our Catholic Tradition, we receive this mercy of God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation and for this Jubilee year also specially through the Jubilee Door of Grace.
But having received this mercy, how can we share the generosity of our Lord this Jubilee?
In line with one of the Jesuit Universal Apostolic Preferences, our Jubilee will be focused on “Walking with the poor and excluded”. This will be a reminder for us to recall the generous mercy of God, and share that generosity with those less fortunate than us.
Our Parish’s selected beneficiary for this Jubilee is Morning Star Community Services.
