25th Anniversary of SFX Major Seminary

On 12th April, the Archdiocese organised the Day of Prayer for Vocation held at Holy Spirit Parish. There was a time of prayer led by the youths of the parish, the Serra Club as well as the seminarians. This was followed by Mass celebrated by our Archbishop. During the Mass, the Archbishop unveiled and officially launched the logo for the Seminary's 25th Anniversary Celebrations. (Yes this kampung is only 25 years young)

Explanation Of The Logo

The central figure in the logo is a priest proclaiming the Glory of the Lord. With his hands raised to Heaven in the posture of a cross, the priest is configured to Our Lord Jesus, crucified on the Cross for all of us. Resplendent in a white cassock and red stole, the priest evokes the imagery of a Teacher of the Word, Minister of the Sacraments and Leader of the Community.

The red stole and the cross resemble the Major Seminary's iconic tower, symbolising the institution's central role in forming and training priests for the Archdiocese of Singapore.

In the background, the stylised number '25' marks the silver jubilee of the Seminary.

The overall colour scheme is festive and reflects the liturgical colours of white, red and purple. Finally yellow signifies the Light of Christ radiating from the Cross.
More about the 25th Anniversary Celebrations to be posted later, but here are some photos of the event. Enjoy
