" Praise and thank God for the Parish Mission that was conducted in our parish this year, 2016.

Having been visited by Redemptorist Priest, Fr Jacob Ong, and with his encouragement, some of us Catholics from Blocks 202 and 203, Toa Payoh North got together in the month of May to form the Neighbourhood Christian Community (NCC) Group. It was indeed an opportune time for us to meet in May as it being the month of the Rosary. We met in different homes to pray the rosary and at the same time got to know each other.

By the grace of God, there were Catholics from within Toa Payoh Estate joining us in prayers and on all occasions some members from the Legion of Mary in our parish came to give us moral and spiritual support.

At our gathering on 23 Jul, Fr Jacob Ong came and joined us in praying the rosary as well as in our 'makan kechil'. Fr Jacob was full of affirmation for this NCC group as its members comprised mainly senior citizens from Blocks 202 and 203. He was glad to see the active participation of these members. He encouraged us to be active and to meet often. In so doing, we could together grow in faith and support each other in prayers and understanding.

We praise and thank our loving God for His blessings and graces showered on us in this NCC group. "
