Through a special website and numerous events to help offer catechesis, Risen Christ parish in central Singapore has promoted spiritual growth for its diverse parishioners throughout the Year of Faith.
"It is important for us that the Faith has to be shared and we can't take it for granted," Fr. John Sim, pastor and head of the Year of Faith committee at Risen Christ, told CNA Aug 31.
When Benedict XVI announced the Year of Faith, the parish formed a committee to "brainstorm and propose" various activities to help parishioners in rekindling their faith life, given the diverse ages and backgrounds of those who come to the parish.
Fr. Sim said he has 8,000 parishioners of various nationalities, including Malaysians, Chinese, Filipinos, Koreans and Indian. In addition to English, Masses there are said in Mandarin, Tamil, and Tagalog.
