Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Lady of Mount Carmel Scapular

This weekend, we will celebrate the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the parish of Sts. Peter & Paul, since we are under the pastorship of the Discalced Carmelites (OCD).

After the Mass, there will be a candlelit procession around the compound of the church accompanied by the recitation of the rosary and Marian antiphons / hymns. At the end of the procession, there will be the investiture of the Brown Scapular.

A limited number of the Missalette (Our Lady of Mount Carmel) will be made available as you enter the main entrance of the church for the Saturday 5:30pm Mass. Feel free to download, print and bring your own. Read More…

An Invitation: Casual Workshop

Did you know:

  • that there are many ways to change the way you sound to fit the purpose of what you are attempting to communicate?
  • you could use your diaphragm to “throw” your voice and project it into the entire church without the use of microphones?
  • the Sound of Music has been teaching music to generations of people just by listening to “Do-Re-Mi”?

Come and “Discover Your Voice” as well as pick up “Basic Music Reading” skills at a casual workshop with our choir’s Music Director, Kenneth Wee.

We’d like to welcome and invite you to get-to-know us 🙂

10 Steps to Rediscover and Recover

I have been asked on several occasions on where to start the journey of rediscovering the Catholic traditions for the Mass (in the Ordinary Form). And in several conversations with various individuals who sincerely seek to come to terms with accepting the teachings of the Magisterium, very often there is difficulty in letting go the favoured and popular music that have become staple in our Catholic Mass.

Here are possibly (though not exhaustive) 10 topics that have been repeatedly mentioned at length in various formation talks, workshops, seminars that I have attended in the past as well as books and documents that I have had the privilege of reading – all summarized for the eager beaver 🙂
