What’s So Good About Catholic Schools?
Committed to the transformation of the whole person, Catholic schools embrace the individual’s emotional, aesthetic, spiritual, religious, intellectual, physical, vocational, moral and social dimensions. Each person who enters their gates is seen and valued as a child of God.
Bethany East Clergy Residence
Of the more than 150 priests currently in the Archdiocese of Singapore, almost a third have been priests for more than 30 years. As the number of senior clergy is expected to rise, priority was placed on the renovation of Bethany East Clergy Residence. It was optimally designed to be elderly-friendly for those who have devoted their lives to the care of others. Renovation began in January 2017 and was completed in September 2018. Three priests have since moved in.
Communion in Mission
Just like unleavened bread, we are moulded together by the same Spirit, to form one body – Christ’s living body on earth. Each of us is co-responsible for the mission of the Church. Our lives and the work of our hands are consecrated to be given and shared with all – our families, friends, communities.
Welcome to Our New Seminary

Who are our Priests?
There are currently over 157 priests in the Archdiocese of Singapore, of which nearly a third have been priests for more than 30 years. 42% of our priests are 60 years old and above.

The Spirituality of Giving
“We are called to be stewards of God’s blessings. We are all trustees, in resources, in talents. This is where we are challenged to ask ourselves, how do we use the resources that the Lord has blessed us with?”
Who Are The Givers In Our Church?
Our Church in Singapore is what it is today, because of the generations of givers who have come before us. It is our time now to take on the mantle to ensure the life giving work of the Body of Christ, the Church continues with a new vigour. With some sacrifice; let us draw on our collective talents and resources to bring Christ more personally to our brothers and sisters and to those who have yet to know our loving Saviour.
