SOYA SAUCE FACTORY
By the turn of the 19th century, the number of Catholics in Singapore was rising. Many Chinese Catholics from all over the island attended the Church of Sts Peter and Paul. At that time, it was the only church that served the Chinese population. Father Vincent Gazeau, who was in-charge of the Cantonese and Hakka-speaking Catholics, felt that it would be necessary to build a church that would cater for these two groups, allowing the Teochew and Hokkien-speaking Catholics to remain at Sts Peter and Paul Church. So in 1908, Father Gazeau started a building fund for this church. It was said that only after a novena to the Sacred Heart was made that the site of an old abandoned soya sauce factory, located behind Fort Canning Hill, was made available for the church.
Catechism classes meet on every Sunday morning from 10.30am to 11.30am in the classrooms at the Parish Building. Our Catechetical Ministry helps to foster faith and spiritual formation for children aged between 7 and 15. They prepare the 10 years old for their First Holy Communion and the 15 years old to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. For more information, please email: email@example.com
Wardens welcome parishioners as they enter Church, assist with seating, take up collections, direct Communion lines and any other assistance requested by the Priest. Those who are interested in serving in the Ministry of Wardens may approach the Wardens on duty at Mass.
