Participants’ Testimonials

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The Catholic Foundation seeks to promote stewardship, particularly financial stewardship.

Money, as a subject, is not much discoursed in the Church. Yet, having to manage and at times struggle and worry about money is a lived reality for most of us. And how we should do so in the light of our Catholic faith is not always clear.

The course, God, Money & Me, was created to fill what we believe is a gap in the understanding of how Catholics in Singapore should deal with our finances in a way that is aligned to scripture and the teaching of the Catholic Church.
