The adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist for thirty minutes will be held immediately following the 10:30 am Holy Mass on this Sunday Jan 26.

2nd Collection for St. Peter’s Pence
(Sun. 19 Jan. 2020 @ DBIS)
The Holy See is very grateful for the financial support given by our Diocese in the past, but it is appealing for an even more generous support from us in view of its enormous expenses.
In our Diocese, a second collection in support of this purpose is to be taken up at all public Masses on This Sunday. Please support the Diocese generously.
Update: $6,250 was collected on Sunday, 19th January 2020. Thank you for your generosity.

Pray for Hong Kong
As our local social unrest has now reached a critical stage, Cardinal John Tong appeals to the faithful to offer special prayers for Hong Kong. That is to pray more intensely for the well-being of Hong Kong society every Friday, with performance of works of penance or charity (such as attending Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, fasting, Way of the Cross and serving the poor and the needy).
Family Visit Services
Our parish priests and deacon provide family visit services including blessing of the house, delivery of Eucharist, anointing of the sick, pre-marriage blessing, etc. We are now encouraging parishioners to make use of these services by filling in the relevant form or contacting our secretary, Ms. Ida Lam 3590 8017, for arrangement.
The forms are available at the DBIS hall entrance during Sunday Mass. (A printable copy will be made available on this website shortly.)
Please get involved. Please WhatsApp Lucy at 6054 3084 or Kim at 9300 5920 to give your child's name, age and contact details. We will add them to our directory and WhatsApp group that has all of our youth activities listed. We have one youth activity planned each month so please do not miss out. Great way to get to know others in the church and for the youth to have a new set of friends.
Needed: Guitarist or Keyboard player
The Choirs for the Saturday 6pm Anticipated Mass and Sunday 8:00am Mass are in need of a guitarist or keyboard player. The role of the choir is vital and essential in our Sunday liturgies.
Please contact the following coordinators if you are able to assist:
Prayer for the Year of 'Practice, Belief, Youth'
Heavenly Father, we give thanks to you, for in your love and mercy you have called us to be your children and sharers of your divine life. We pray for our young people.
May they cherish your care and concern for them, and, with the same loving care, serve the poor and the needy, and protect the weak.
Sustained by your grace, may young people put their faith into practice. May they strive for holiness and lead others to achieve the same goal. In this way, may they help to bring about the transformation of the world.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
Composed by Most Rev. Joseph Ha, OFM VG
