Soul Food

Apart from our shared love for Jesus, we at OYP also share a great love for food so that tells you a little bit about our choice of words here!

But as it says in scripture,"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." - Luke 4:4

It is our hope that the stories and reflections you find here will serve to encourage and bless you on your faith journey. We hope it serves as a reminder that none of us are really alone!

Just before university started in 2014, I attended the Awaken retreat. It was my first […]

Evangelisation? Do we Catholics even do that?”

5 Places In Singapore You Never Thought To Pray At

By Rachel Kenyon Often we think that prayer means to sit in a chapel for hours on end, repeating set prayers, but being in a fast-paced society like Singapore, we cannot “afford the time” to pray. St Teresa of Avila defines prayer to be “nothing else than an intimate friendship, a frequent heart-to-heart conversation with […]
