The Catholic Foundation is the fundraising arm of the Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore. It is driven by a spiritual mission – to promote Christian giving and to “Build the Church Today for Tomorrow”.
Its vision is to inspire Catholics to prayerfully consider their stewardship responsibility to commit their time, talent and treasures to help build a vibrant, evangelising and missionary Church in Singapore.
As a key part of this vision, the Catholic Foundation recognises that the Church of Tomorrow will be led by the Young Adults of Today. It is hence of paramount importance that the Catholic Foundation, with its own unique vision, mission and charisms, plays its role in building the Church of Tomorrow through active engagement of our Young Adult Catholics Today.
The ultimate vision is to build a network of young working adult communities and organisations, who can engage with each other and be thought leaders on critical issues faced by young adult Catholics today, in building the Church for tomorrow.
The fulfilment of this vision is very much dependent on young adult Catholics becoming stewards of the gifts that they have received, so as to see giving of themselves with their time, talent or treasures as returning “grace upon grace” (John 1:16). This event is the first, but definitely not the last, step towards us moving towards this vision.
A platform where passionate voices become co-creators in shaping mindsets about faith in today’s world, and being stewards of God’s gifts, using them for the good of God and His Church in Singapore. Specifically, the Foundation seeks to connect young working adults in identifying our gifts, the specific needs of the Church where we are called to utilise our gifts, and to commit to (re-)give our gifts to Christ and His Church out of love.
We will hear testimonies from fellow Catholics, and reflect and share about the needs of the Church, our individual gifts and how we are called to use them in areas of:
- Personal Vocation & Mission in Action
- Creativity, Communion & Collaboration
- Compassion, Economic Justice & Stewardship
