Souvenir magazine for the Paulines Golf for a Cause in aid of the Daughters of St Paul Building Fund

A Message of Thanks

Dear Friends,

Lee Trevino, regarded as one of the top golfers of our time, once said, “There are two things you

can do with your head down – play golf and pray.” This charity event, the Paulines Golf

for a Cause, merges the game of golf and spirituality. Through your generous support and participation

today, you are contributing to the mission of the Daughters of Saint Paul by helping the Sisters

in Singapore build a new convent for their residence and their apostolate of evangelization with the

media.

The following pages in this souvenir magazine illustrate the life and the mission of the Daughters

of Saint Paul, locally and around the world. Our heartfelt thanks to you for your kind support in

helping us continue our media ministry by putting a roof over our heads as we seek new ways to

nourish the faith and spiritual life of the people in Singapore, and beyond.

In the ever evolving field of the media, our mission today includes both new media (digital,

social and multi-media) and traditional media (publication and distribution of bibles, books and

audiovisuals on spirituality, faith formation, family life etc.). Besides writing and publishing, we also

serve the church and society through audiovisual production, media literacy, religious education,

adult faith formation and spiritual development.

Through your support, you become our mission partners as you

indirectly participate in our call to bring the Gospel message of joy

and love in the media of today and consequently, build up the

body of Christ here in Singapore.

As you bowed your heads to play golf today, we

gratefully bowed our heads to God and prayed for all

of you.

May God bless each of you and be assured of our continual

prayers for you and your loved ones.

A Message of Thanks

Dear Friends,

Once again, you have willingly and generously responded to the

call to help our religious brothers and sisters.

The Religious Communities have been active in Singapore for

over 100 years and even with little material help, they have been

primarily responsible for establishing and running schools, hospitals,

homes for the aged and sick as well as training centres.

Today, we are called to help the Daughters of

Saint Paul in their efforts to establish a permanent

convent in Singapore and the monies raised

today will go some way to help them to realise

their dreams.

Thank you and God bless,

Dr. Krishnamoorthy

Sittampalam

OUR HISTORY

Blessed

James Alberione

(1884-1971)

Founder of the

Pauline Family.

‘First Apostle of the

New Evangelisation.’

(St John Paul II)

Printing Press

It all began at the turn of the century,

when 16 year old James Alberione,

a seminarian in Alba, Italy spent the

night of 31st December 1900 in Eucharistic

Adoration at the Cathedral of Alba. There, he

received a particular enlightenment from the

Lord, the initial inspiration for a mission "to

do something for God and the people of the

new (20th) century."

Inspired by the universal spirit of St Paul,

Alberione recognised that the media was a

gift of God that could be used to reach the

whole world with the message of the Gospel.

He founded the Daughters of Saint Paul

in 1915 (and one year prior, the Society

of Saint Paul for priests and brothers) and

eventually, a total of 10 Institutes called the

Pauline Family.

Bringing the Good News to all.

He envisioned a community of priests,

brothers, sisters, lay men and women all

committed to evangelising through every

form of communication. In the Daughters

of St Paul he saw women participating in

the priestly mission of preaching, not from

a pulpit but from writing desks and printing

presses. ‘Woman is on the move,’ Alberione

had written, ‘and it is a marvellous thing!’

“ Give What is Certain.

Give the Truth that Saves. ”

— Blessed James Alberione

Film apostolate included

“Mother of God,” the first

coloured film made in Italy.

In today’s culture of modern communications and new challenges in society,

our central mission is to communicate Christ, in the media languages familiar

to the masses but first and foremost, through the witness of our lives,

consecrated to God and dedicated to the Gospel.

Our community in

Singapore was established

in 1994 as part of the

missionary project on the birth

centenary of our co-Foundress

Venerable Thecla Merlo. Over

the past two decades, we have

written and produced books,

videos, and CDs.

We run a small Media Centre

at Church of the Risen Christ

(Toa Payoh) and on a regular

basis, conduct media outreaches

in parishes and schools. Part

of our ministry also includes

Media Spirituality and Literacy

formation for youth and adults.

Over the Advent-Christmas

seasons, we carry out our

apostolate in Jurong Point Mall

in an effort to bring Christ

to the marketplace with a

selection of Bibles, spiritual

books and media items. We

have also participated in the

Cana Film Festival, as a way

of sharing the Church’s social

teachings through film.

Outreach at Jurong Point Mall

Since our foundation in

Singapore in 1994, the

Archdiocese has generously

provided us with a convent

in Jurong West but due to

circumstances, we are now

tasked with the challenge

of building our own mission

house in Singapore. We

appeal to all who would like

to support our ministry to

help us build our convent

so that we can remain here

to serve the local Church of

Singapore.

SHARING THE JOY

OF THE GOSPEL

IN SINGAPORE


Following the example of

Jesus, who showed that

the essence of divine

communication is giving oneself

to others in love, a Daughter of

St Paul lives religious consecration

while serving the Church with

the communications media.

chastity and obedience to God.

One

Jesus Christ.

One burning

love-

desire-

to give him to souls.

Bl. James Alberione

The many hours you spend in

intimate conversation with Jesus

Master refresh your spirit daily and

keep you anchored to the Tabernacle.

These hours are alternated with

those you spend on the move:

on the crowded streets of great

cities, in schools, hospitals, prisons

— everywhere, in search of souls.

Daughters of St Paul around

the world spread the Gospel

message of Joy, Hope, and

Love through music.

As we sing, we pray for all those whom our

voices will reach through different channels,

whether on the radio, on Spotify, on a CD in

a hospital room. What a consolation it is for

us when people tell us how much hope they

have found (and of lives saved from suicide)

through our music!

no boundaries.

Its boundaries are

Our Media

Centres are

focal points of

apostolate. They are

not commercial shops

but centres of service

to the faithful. They do

not sell but carry out an

apostolate for offerings.

BOOKS & MEDIA

They are not places of

business but centres

of light and warmth in

Jesus Christ. Their aim

is not to make money

but to serve the Church

and people, not for

profit but for spiritual

benefit.

The Media Centre is a

temple; the one who

serves, a preacher. The

counter is a pulpit of

truth.

Light, holiness, joy

in Jesus Christ and

Christian life are the

goals sought.

— Blessed James

Alberione

DON’T SPEAK ONLY

ABOUT RELIGION.

SPEAK ABOUT EVERYTHING

IN A CHRISTIAN WAY.

Sisters in their senior years help in the

assembling of books in the bindery in Italy

In Japan, the Sisters produce many inspirational greeting cards

and verse cards.

Whether they are in the USA (left) or Pakistan, the Daughters of St Paul are always excited about their new books.
