The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore oversees a congregation of some 360,000 Catholics. The Titular head is the Most Rev. William Goh, Archbishop of Singapore.
The Archdiocese has 31 churches spread across 5 districts in Singapore. Aside from providing spiritual formation and pastoral care for its members as well as those in need, the Archdiocese, in communion with the Vatican, also carries out its moral and social responsibility by working in collaboration with like-minded partners and those in authority to preserve peace and unity and to ensure that justice and truth are available to all in our society.
The Office for Young People seeks to raise up a generation of young people passionately in love with Jesus and His Church and committed to a lifestyle of discipleship and communion.
One of the most important tenets of Catholic Education is raising our children in the Catholic faith. A holistic education system lies where children are raised to be individuals who are morally responsible, good citizens and contribute to the moral fabric of our society.
Willed by God in the very act of creation, marriage and the family are interiorly ordained to fulfillment in Christ and have need of His graces in order to be healed from the wounds of sin and restored to their “beginning,” that is, to full understanding and the full realisation of God’s plan (Familiaris Consortio, 4).
Christian marriage and the Christian family build up the Church: for in the family the human person is not only brought into being and progressively introduced by means of education into the human community, but by means of the rebirth of baptism and education in the faith the child is also introduced into God’s family, which is the Church (Familiaris Consortio, 15).
Caritas Singapore is the official social and community arm of the Catholic Church in Singapore, and the umbrella body for 23 Catholic charities whose work touches the lives of more than 50,000 beneficiaries regardless of race, language or religion. They are also a member of Caritas Internationalis, a global federation of 165 humanitarian organisations.
The Catholic Spirituality Centre (CSC) is an establishment of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese in Singapore.
Established on the grounds of the former Minor Seminary in Ponggol, Road, it was re-commissioned in 2004 to be ‘A cradle for Catholic spirituality in Singapore’, re-evangelizing and helping Catholics in the archdiocese to deepen their spiritual formation in the Catholic tradition so that they can grow to become better witnesses for Christ.
Underpinning their evangelization efforts is the thrust to transform lives. The Centre’s Mission is focused on enabling those in search of life, to have a personal experience of the immense love of God the Father, and to receive healing, so that transformed, they will be able to live as empowered disciples of Christ.
