STATIONS OF THE CROSS (by YPC)

We retrace the steps and reflect on the journey of Jesus up to Calvary. Presented by the Young People’s Community in St Mary’s, with opening and closing prayer by Friar Michael D’Cruz.


STATIONS OF THE CROSS with Pope Francis

Stations of the Cross presented by the Franciscan Friars of St Mary’s, with the meditations and reflections written by Pope Francis when he visited Assisi after he was elected Pope.

THE DOS AND DON’TS @ CONFESSION

A 5-episode tongue-in-cheek guide on the Dos and Don’ts of making a good confession, produced by the Portiuncula Ministry, a working adults group of St Mary’s.

A TAPESTRY OF SACRED ORGAN MUSIC EP3

This Palm Sunday, the organists of St Mary’s present “A Royal Procession on ‘All Glory, Laud and Honour’”. Contrasting to the previous two instalments foreshadowing the crucifixion of Jesus, this piece is a glorious mark of the start of Holy Week, as the crowds welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem.

PASSION OF CHRIST – THE FRIAR’S JAM

Join us in our Friars’ Jam: Holy Week edition with Friar Derrick and Jacob Teo. As we accompany our Saviour with palms and praises to the Holy City, as He enters to meet His painful destiny, may we follow Him faithfully to the end.

AS I HAVE DONE FOR YOU – DAN SCHUTTE

Featuring the Franciscan Friars and presented by St Mary’s Music Ministry.

“This is My commandment:

To love as I have loved you.

Kneel to wash each other’s feet

As I have done for you.”
