As I complete the last day of the third year of my episcopate as the Archbishop of Singapore, I want to praise and thank God for guiding me through all these years.

National Day Message 2015

July 29th, 2015|Current Events, Messages|

Last month we gathered as one Church to celebrate 50 years of the Catholic Church’s contribution to nation-building. It was an event like no other. There was little evidence of the traditional pomp and pageantry that one would normally associate with the Catholic Church; something which is often the cause of our pride.

Church and Nation Building

May 1st, 2015|Current Events, Messages|

As Catholics, we have every reason to celebrate, because the Church has been instrumental to the growth and development of Singapore. From education to healthcare, she has not only founded institutions that have helped to springboard us from a backwater slum to the first world country that we are today, but more importantly, she has helped to forge the morals and values of our society.
