Some Chinese Catholics of a parish in Singapore cycled 14 churches and raised funds to help the poor on Good Friday, April 15, 2022.
A group of parishioners from the Chinese Community at Church of Christ the King cycled to Church of the Sacred Heart, Singapore.
They were on a mission to raise funds for the poor of their parish as well as participating in an initiative to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Church of Christ the King.
They cycled to 14 churches and said the prayers of the Stations of the Cross at each church.
“May we be inspired by these pilgrims in their enthusiasm to pray and to care for the poor. As we keep the joy of Easter in our hearts, let us always bear in mind the needs of the poor and the power of prayer,” said a parishioner of Church of the Sacred Heart.
Church of Christ the King is situated at 2221 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8, Singapore. It was established in 1982.
