Lent at Assisi

200 years ago, on 11 December 1821, St Laurent Imbert landed in Singapore. From then on, missionaries from faraway lands came and reached out to the locals. In this year of Catholic200SG, Assisi Hospice is thankful to be part of this mission.

At Assisi Hospice, we provide care with dignity and comfort for patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families. The Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM) started this mission in 1969. During the early years of Assisi Hospice, the Sisters took on the roles of matron, nurse, pastoral care, fundraiser and administrator to serve those in need. When we needed more beds for patients, the Sisters willingly gave up their convent to be converted into an inpatient hospice.  

We continue to live this heritage of the FMDM mission which is rooted in the belief that we are carers of the needy and privileged companions at an important season of their life’s journey.

This year, as you celebrate Catholic200SG, live out the meaning of Lent at Assisi and join us to carry on our Mission of serving those in need by journeying with our patients and their loved ones.

Well, the answer lies in the fact that we call today Good Friday. Today is good because this Jesus’ death was given

A Life That Breathes Mission

by Genevieve Especkerman Being caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, it is all too easy to forget the presence of the Spirit that enlivens and animates what we do. We go about each day fulfilling our commitments because we have to. We have to complete all the items on our to-do lists.  We

Holy Week: Wednesday

Then one of the Twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, “What are you willing to give me if I hand him [Jesus] over to you?” They paid him thirty pieces of silver, and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to hand him over. (Matthew 26:14-16)

Holy Week : Tuesday

It is often hard coming to terms with expectations in our faith just like the disciples in today’s Gospel. Jesus in his humility was the ultimate glorifier of God, the true embodiment of a living sacrifice. The disciples were keen to glorify God but could not accept that they could be the ones abandoning Jesus
