My heart is restless until it rests in You O God
- St Augustine of Hippo
Young working adults desire a life of significance in their careers, friendships, relationships; and struggle with tension of holding everything in balance. At the root of this desire is a deep restlessness, a yearning for more. And the object of our search is Jesus Christ, who promises to give us life, life in abundance (John 10:10).
We want to raise up a generation of young catholic working adults in Singapore who desire to live and share in this fullness of life. Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction (Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI). It is possible for us to encounter the love of God, and allow this love to be the source and direction of our lives.
At OYP we reach out to young adults across Singapore through the Emmaus in the City programme, we organize a semi-annual, live-in Treasure Retreat for people who wish to deepen their faith; and we build communities where individuals can walk daily in faith and discipleship.
An encounter retreat for young working adults which seeks to facilitate establishing a personal relationship with Jesus and deepening the commitment to discipleship which includes a commitment to community and mission.
Working Adult Communities
To date, 1Peter, Fig Tree, 7 Graces, Spero, Living Ark, Revelations 22, Tent of Meeting, Psalm 84 and Jacob's Well are the non-parish based communities we journey with. It has been a joy to get to know them and collaborate with them for the service of the Kingdom.
