Exams are Over and Holidays are Here!

Dear friends of Kampung Punggol,

After an exciting and grace-filled first semester, we have finally come to its end with the completion of our first semester examinations. We were all busy mugging for our exams and have been unable to share with all of you some of the exciting occurrences here in Kampung Punggol. Now that the holidays are upon us, we hope to make time to share with you some of our reflections during this time of vacation. All of us will be spending 30 Days of our vacation doing our pastoral attachments at various places and after which, we will be getting ready for our much anticipated participation at the upcoming World Youth Day in Sydney, Australia. 7 out of 8 of us Singaporean Seminarians will be accompanying the wonderful Catholic undergraduates from the National University of Singapore (NUS) whilst 1 of us will be accompanying the Archdiocesan Youth Office contingent. We hope to share with you some of our thoughts and excitement as we draw closer to the date in due time.

World Youth Days are amazing times of grace when the good Lord brings to birth many new vocations to the priesthood for His Church and we trust that He shall stir many hearts yet again at the upcoming World Youth Day. Do join us in praying for a powerful time of grace for all the participants of World Youth Day 2008. "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you will be my witnesses!"
