Beginning of Year Mass 2019


As we gathered for our beginning of year mass on 11 January 2019, the staff and students of CHIJ (Katong) Primary were invited to give thanks to God for His abundant blessings. This mass was celebrated by Fr. Alphonsus Dominic from the Church of the Holy Family.

As we celebrate our 165 th Anniversary this year as an IJ family, our theme for this mass, ‘Sow Seeds of Love’ reminds us to appreciate the acts of love and kindness shown to us so that we in turn may also be inspired to be caring and generous to others around us. Father shared a true story in his homily that we sometimes do not realise how much God loves us and the blessings he has blessed us with. We should always be thankful and show gratitude by sowing the seeds of love in our everyday lives be it in school or at home. All of us should reach out to others who need a listening ear and to offer our help to others around us. Father concluded his homily that, “When you give love, you will receive love and it never ends.”
