Who We Are

Our Community of Paracounsellors (CPC) was started in 2006 under Catholic Family Life (formerly known as Family Life Society) to provide pro-bono counselling services to anyone who requires support. Our volunteers include Hotline Support members and para-counsellors with formal counselling training and are ready to provide a listening ear.

Our Vision

To be a community grounded in faith, uplifting each other, proficient in counselling, bring hope and healing to families, couples and individuals facing life's challenges.

Our Services

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are piloting e-counselling via Zoom from Monday to Saturday. This service will be provided until further evaluation.

Policy for Funerals in the Archdiocese of Singapore

  1. As a principle the funeral is normally arranged at the parish of the deceased.
  2. The parish of the deceased is determined by the parish that he/she normally had been attending for their Masses and liturgical services.
  3. Before arranging a time or day of funeral and cremation, do contact the parish concerned to determine the availability of a priest.
  4. In the event that the parish that was contacted is not the parish of the deceased, it would be the duty of the secretary to forward the information to the relevant parish and inform the families concerned.
  5. The parish secretary will assist in sourcing a priest of the parish or another priest for the families to conduct the funeral rites.
  6. For all other logistics in relation to the funeral day and rites, it will then be directed to the parish that will be conducting the funeral.  
  7. In the case of dispute, the territorial parish will assume responsibility for the funeral.
  8. If the parish venue is not available, the parish should arrange for an alternative venue.

CHURCH OF THE HOLY CROSS

PRAYER FOR THE PARISH

Loving God, you gather us as your people and have formed us into a community of faith, hope and love; a priestly, prophetic and kingly people. Humbly we ask you, make our parish truly a communion of communities.

 

Help us to turn away from sin and believe the Gospel, so that we may be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, and to be more like Him day by day.

 

Guide our parish leaders with your wisdom and love. Inspire all our parishioners to offer our time, talents and treasures as stewards of the Gospel, for the growth of your Kingdom.

 

May the Holy Spirit enlighten and invigorate us to actively participate in the mission you entrusted to us, so that we may be a worshipping, witnessing, evangelizing and serving community.

 

May the spirit of collaboration and co-responsibility bring us into a fuller and fruitful communion with you and with one another. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
