Start the June holidays the best way possible—in prayer! On Tuesday, 1 June, from 8pm to 9pm, the ACCS will be leading an intercessory prayer session on Zoom, in conjunction with Catholic200SG, celebrating two hundred years of Catholicism in Singapore.
After the opening hymn, Sister Cecily Pavri will give an introduction to the session. She will speak about the missionaries who founded our Catholic schools, heeding the call of the Gospel to make Christ known and loved. Sr Pavri will touch on how the original missionaries inspired locals to follow in their footsteps and continue the legacy of Catholic education.
After Sr Pavri’s introduction, each religious congregation and their schools will give a short presentation, comprised of a scripture reading and quote from their founder, followed by prayers of the faithful. Together, the community will pray for our Catholic schools, school leaders, teachers, students, parents, sponsors, the Ministry of Education, the Catholic Church and our nation.
The session will also include hymns led by three teachers from St Stephen’s School.
Diocesan school representatives will close the session with a prayer to St Joseph and the Catholic200SG prayer. This will be followed by the final blessing and a closing hymn.
As we celebrate Catholic200SG, we invite parents, educators, and students to join us in prayer, giving thanks for the gift of Catholic Education, a legacy left for us by the early missionaries. Log in with the following details (please note that there is a 1,000-seat capacity for the Zoom event):
