ADVENT SPIRITUAL PACKAGE

Week 1: HOPE

Perhaps some of us may be feeling unprepared or even unsure about how to prepare our hearts to welcome Jesus this year. However, that doesn’t mean that the journey to the manger has to pass us by. At the start of the new liturgical year, let us be intentional in preparing for the arrival of the infant Jesus! 

We will be releasing spiritual packages each week during Advent, and all the way to the Feast of the Epiphany. Each package will include a reflection on the Sunday’s gospel, a prayer activity, and a call to action.

We recommend gathering a small group of friends to embark on this journey with. Let us together, stay awake and keep watch (Mark 13:35)

UPCOMING

Combined Uni Retreat

Combined University Retreat (CUR) is a retreat for all university students both local and overseas, to prepare our hearts to receive Jesus – the true reason for Christmas!

“Through CUR, I am reminded that I am free, that Jesus sets me free everyday if I choose to let Him. I can claim that because I love Jesus, I am free to let go of my guilt & shame, if I want Jesus to fill all of my heart, there is no room for this guilt & shame. I can claim that I know the God who loves me, the God who has never changed the way He has looked at me since the day I was conceived.” – Erin Chuah, NUS, Participant

“I came into CUR feeling weighed down by project submissions and exams and my spiritual life was very dry. I felt unworthy for being chosen as a facilitator. However, during CUR, I fell in love with God once again and broke down during the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. He reminded me that I was a beloved child of God and that he will never ever stop loving me. God reminded me that he will always be faithful even when I am unfaithful. Leaving CUR, I am renewed and am empowered by God. I am recommitted to this one true faith that we have and I will continue to choose Jesus just as how he chose me before he formed me in my mother’s womb.”- Sarah Luo, SUSS, Service Team

OYP 7th Anniversary Thanksgiving Series:

The Risen Lord Changed My Life

As we celebrate OYP’s 7th Anniversary, we look back on the wonderful things that the Lord has done in the lives of our beloved young people and express gratitude for how the Lord is indeed raising up a generation for Christ. We share one of their stories here with you.

“I have come to see that there really is nothing impossible for God. Through OYP’s various programs, I have seen hardened hearts broken for the Lord. I have witnessed people turn their lives around just because they have encountered Jesus. I have seen people who wanted nothing to do with the Church become passionate for Jesus. All these and more has helped me to recognise that really there is nothing impossible for God. I just need to believe.” – Joanna Chng, OYP Staff

Ordinary Time Growth Series

Ordinary Time Growth Series: Charting A Course for Spiritual Growth

by Joel Tan “How is your walk with Jesus?” – that familiar nebulous question at the start of cell-group sharing. One, that presumes I am currently walking with Jesus. Two, it offers no length of time to which the person is referring. Three, it configures me to think that my relationship with Jesus is a
