We also have several authorised lay ministries in the form of Lay Readers, Worship Leaders, Pastoral Assistants, Pastoral Eucharistic Assistants and  Eucharistic Assistants. We are committed to encourage everyone to realise and exercise their Christian calling.

  • World Mission and Ecumenism Team / Interfaith
