Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

The Church of St. Ignatius in Singapore is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee from 31 July 2020 to 31 July 20201.

In planning our celebrations, we were guided by Leviticus 25, which reminds us that the Jubilee is a year of mercy, forgiveness and renewal. In our Catholic Tradition, we receive this mercy of God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation and during this Jubilee year also specially through the Jubilee Door of Grace. Having received so abundantly, let us remember to share the generosity of the Lord.

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 to recall the grace and mercy of God and in gratitude share what we have with those less fortunate than ourselves.

Our Parish's selected beneficiary for this Jubilee is 'Morning Star Community Services'.

It is my hope to see our parishioners celebrate our Jubilee with a spirit of gratitude and generosity and come together as a family to reach out to those less fortunate than ourselves. No amount is too small and any contribution will be deeply appreciated.

About The Charity

Morning Star Community Services is a registered charity and Institution of Public Character which aims to enrich and strengthen family relationships in Singapore. By empowering individuals and families, we strive to build vibrant communities that can make a difference to society.

In a world where challenges to harmonious family relationships are increasing in intensity, Morning Star Community Services also provides upstream, preventive and early intervention programmes, counselling services, and family life education workshops which are conducted regularly for the benefit of parents and their children.

We have two initiatives that serve the underprivileged and disadvantaged children - NOVA and CareNights.

NOVA is school-based (our centres are located in the schools) and reaches out to children who are not doing well in school. They tend to come from low-income and multi-stressed families.

CareNights is a free night care programme for children of families in need. The children come to our centres from 6pm to 10pm on weeknights because their parents are unable to look after them at night for various reasons. We provide dinner and structured activities to enhance the children's learning of skills and values.
