I was just turning off this cell phone so that we won’t be
interrupted by any calls. I hear them ringing in Church all
the time. They’re like part of the music program. I guess
somebody’s always trying to get a-hold of you. At home,
when the phone rings, I always think it’s going to be
somebody I know. But it’s almost always a telemarketer
interested in my credit card number. They call constantly,
don’t they? They mispronounce my name terribly and always
with some deals for me. But you know? There’s someone
else calling all the time too, someone who is totally interested
in me, who knows my name by heart, and who’s got the best
deal of all.

|Level 9 teen Erik spent his Sunday helping SSVP organise donated items so that they are packed in
time to be delivered to the needy in Cambodia in time for Christmas. Next weekend, a group of 30 teens will serve at Willing Hearts, a Soup Kitchen on 1 Nov 14.
Although our Level 9 teens have finished their ministry attachment, their Confirmation preparation journey continues. Last Sunday, as part of their Outreach Project series, our teens helped the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SSVP) sort and pack donated items for Cambodia. Two teens went to the All Saints Home for the elderly the same weekend.
From this weekend, photos of the confirmands will be screened at the foyer. Please pray for them as they enter the final weeks of their preparations. Confirmation will be on 9 November, 5:30pm Mass, celebrated by Archbishop William Goh.
