Catholics in Singapore are preparing for the beginning of the Pauline Year, which will be inaugurated in the country with a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Nicholas Chia.
On June 28, Archbishop Chia will bless a bronze statue of St. Paul that has been donated to the parish. It will be placed next to a statue of St. Peter.
A special book will also be available at the parish for the faithful to sign their names and write down their prayer intentions. It will be sent to the Holy See at the conclusion of the Pauline Year.
Father Thomas Lin, pastor of the church, told FIDES, “I hope the Pauline Year will help better understand this saint and the message in his letters. I also hope each Christian can rediscover, thanks to St. Paul, his own vocation and mission.”
