ACF which was established in February 2014, came about after Archbishop William Goh asked the Family Life Society (FLS) board to set up a committee to lead, manage and coordinate all archdiocesan organisations in the family life apostolate.
Vicar General Msgr Ambrose Vaz is ACF’s spiritual director.
“Many families are hurting. We need to rediscover and reclaim God’s plan for our families, a plan that leads to peace, joy, hope and love that our families are meant for, said ACF chairman, Mr John Hui.
“We hope many Catholics will join us and be part of this event and journey.”
Catholics working in the Changi Business Park can now attend weekday lunchtime Masses just like their office counterparts in other areas in Singapore.
About 110 workers attended the Catholic Prayer Society’s (CPS) inaugural lunchtime Mass, held at the business park’s UE Convention Centre’s Meeting Room on Aug 20.
In his homily, Fr Terence Pereira, the society’s spiritual director, noted that in today’s world, things are seldom fair. Some are paid more, while others less. As believers, Catholics should simply do the work they are called to do, because what matters to God in the end when we meet Him is what we, and not what others, have done, he said.
The new lunchtime Mass at Changi was welcomed by those who attended.
