Dear friends,

Sorry that we have been pretty quiet here at Kampung Punggol blog. Its been a terribly hectic time for all of us. We were having our exams which only ended on 28 Nov 08 which was immediately followed by our seminary's 25th Anniversary celebrations. The celebration was a time for us to welcome back many treasured friends of our seminary and it was especially a time of giving thanks for God's faitthfulness over these past 25 years.

Our year end holidays began with the end of the 25th Anniversary Dinner on Monday night and I think all of us seminarians were certainly glad that it was finally time for us to take a breather and to wind down from the months of our hectic schedule. The past few days were spent cleaning up our rooms in seminary and shifting into our new rooms, for most of us Singaporean Seminarians, whilst most of our Malaysian brothers have already made their way back home.

We certainly hope to update all of you, our dear friends of Kampung Punggol blog ,about our past few months in the days to come but do be patient as holidays are usually just as busy for us as well :)

In the mean time, do keep us in prayer as all of us return home to our families to celebrate the birth of our Saviour and also return to our home parishes to be amongst the parish communities which helped nurture our vocations. Do also pray for 4 of our Alumni of our seminary; one of our brothers will be ordained a priest on 8 Dec 08 for the Catholic Church of Brunei and 3 of our brothers will be ordained Deacons for the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur. So do join us in praying for them as well.

Wishing all of you a blessed Advent!
