|Reflections of the Day|
Parishioners coming to Church by taxi or those driving who are dropping off passengers are requested to turn into the Church entrance. Alighting passengers outside the main road before turning into Church will create traffic congestion. Kindly follow the wardens' direction.
Parishioners driving into the Church from main road are reminded to give amber signal indicating their intentions allowing wardens enough time to act. Indicating signal earlier can also help to ease traffic congestion. Drivers are urged to avoid sudden turn shocking pedestrian from this action.
Walk in Single File
For safety reason, parishioners are advised to walk in a single file instead of 2 or 3 abreast along the minor road while leaving or entering the Church. This would minimise the chances of mishap as vehicles are sharing the use of this minor road.
The Office for the New Evangelisation has produced a booklet of reflections for the season of Lent. The theme is “The Inclusive Community? Please take a copy of the booklet. It will also be made available online at: http://www.one.org.sg/resources-for-parishes/.

Dress Code for Mass
The EXCO discussed and wish to remind Parishioners that attending Mass with improper attires will reflect the lack of self-respect display by the individual. Kindly dress appropriately.
Please be aware that the Church takes a very serious view of blessed body of Christ. It is meant for Catholics only. DO NOT encourage your non-Catholic friends to receive the communion. Incidentally, a host was found lying somewhere in the Church.
Cry Room is meant to pacify your crying child(Only 1 adult to accompany your child). Do retain Reverence that is needed in the House of God. Teach your child to Pray instead of play. Refrain from eating or drinking.
