Last year, our 60th Feast Day Celebrations were ‘scuttled’ by COVID-19 and we were not able to have the usual Feast Day funfair and dinner. Another year has passed and the pandemic is still with us so this year, we are determined to have the dinner but online. In the past we would gather either in the church basement carpark or at a function hall somewhere to celebrate our Feast Day dinner. There would be an entertainment program up on the stage and the community would gather around in tables to dine and have fun together.
For the online dinner, there will still be an entertaining program but our stage will now be the church’s YouTube channel. Instead of the dining area with tables, we will gather on Zoom and catch-up there. We are working hard to make this a memorable night so do join us on June 13, 2021 at 8.00 PM on YouTube.
To register for the dinner please visit https://bit.ly/2021FDD-RegForm. We would really appreciate your registration to help us with planning and logistics. By registering, we will send you the Zoom link where everyone can meet up.
St Anthony of Padua was known for his love and work for the poor. In the same spirit, we have identified Crossings Cafe as a good place to order food from because Crossings is a Catholic social enterprise whose profits go toward helping the disadvantaged. We encourage the parishioners joining us for the online dinner to order their food directly from crossings. The menu and other details like ordering, payment and delivery can be found on the Crossings website at https://bit.ly/CrossingsFDMenu.
To kick off the Feast Day celebrations, we started the 9-week Novena to St Anthony on Apr 1, 2021. This is held on Zoom at 8.00 PM. Please join us at:
