Church and Nation Building

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.

Praying for Church in China

n May 2007, Pope Benedict XVI released a Letter to Chinese Catholics, in which he asked that May 24 each year be celebrated as a World Day of Prayer for the Church in China. He chose May 24 because it is the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians, who is venerated at the Shrine of Sheshan (佘山) in Shanghai.
