We have been celebrating Catholic Education Sunday since 2017. For the past three years, we celebrated with different parishes across Singapore. Staff and students from our schools joined the community at different churches, serving as lectors, singing in the choirs and assisting in various ways. Parish priests have been very supportive. Increasingly, parishes embrace our Catholic Schools as part of the larger Catholic Community in Singapore.
This year, owing to the Covid-19 safety measures in place, we will celebrate Catholic Education Sunday differently.
All Catholic schools in Singapore will come together to celebrate Catholic Education Sunday with an online Mass.
Here are the highlights:
• The celebrant will be a Principal – Fr Adrian Danker, SJ and Principal of SJI.
• Mass readings will be led by students.
• Prayer of the faithful will be led by parent, teacher and religious representatives.
• There will be three student virtual choirs – from our pre-schools, primary and secondary schools and Catholic Junior College.
• At the end of the Mass, the congregation can look forward to a prayer of Blessings crafted by our Archbishop and a virtual choir comprising principals, teachers and our religious community of priests, sisters and brothers.
Keep this date free to celebrate Catholic Education Sunday 2020 with us:
Date: 13 Sept 2020
