The Hour Has Come: Explaining the Liturgy of Holy Week

Holy Week (leading up to the Easter Triduum) each year in the liturgical calendar of the Holy Catholic Church is packed with various liturgical rites observed by the Catholic faithful. Being the highlight of the entire year's liturgical celebrations, the faithful join in with Mother Church as she once again sings her song of redemption.

Deacon Sherman Kuek helps us to come to a fuller appreciation of the significance of all these rites and what they mean for our participation in the paschal reality, that is, the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Dialogue with the Secular World: The Challenge of the New Evangelisation

In March 2012, Deacon Sherman addressed the Conference of Major Superiors of Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei on the issue of dialogue with the secular world. This address was given in relation to the call of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI for a New Evangelisation.

Deacon Sherman shares his perspective, with reference to the mind of the Second Vatican Council, on how the Church seeks to understand the reality of modernity and what is most needed for the formation of disciples of Jesus Christ in the modern world today


KEEPING THE FAITH: WHAT ST PAUL TAUGHT THE EARLY CHRISTIANS (6-SESSION SERIES)

(MYR192 / SGD96)

KEEPING THE FAITH: WHAT ST PAUL TAUGHT THE EARLY CHRISTIANS

The recent popes have been calling for a heightened sense of responsibility among the faithful for a "New Evangelisation" of the world. In order for this to happen, all Catholics are once again challenged to return to the heart of the Gospel message. With this, we call to mind the apostolic ministry of one of the greatest evangelists of all time, St Paul, who revolutionised the ancient world through his evangelisation activity and teaching of the Word of God.

Who was St Paul, really? How much has he impacted Christianity as we know it today? And what did he really teach in his multiple volumes of letters written to the Christians in various parts of the world? And most importantly, what do his teachings mean for us?

This six-session series of talks journeys with its audience through an intriguing study to discover who the Apostle Paul was and what his life project was about, in order that we too may be bearers of this very Gospel taught by our Fathers. A workbook is also available for those who might want to refer to outlines while watching the talks (MYR20 / SGD8).


SPLENDOUR OF TRUTH: DIFFICULT QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH (2 PARTS)

(BOX 1 - MYR192 / SGD96 | BOX 2 - MYR256 / SGD128)

SPLENDOUR OF TRUTH: DIFFICULT QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH

Why has the Catholic Church committed so many atrocities throughout history? Why must Catholics have Tradition and not just Scripture alone? Do Catholics worship Mary? Why do Catholics communicate with dead people? Why does the Catholic Church have seven sacraments? If the Eucharist is truly the body and blood of Christ, doesn’t that make Catholics cannibals? Was the Apostle Peter really the first Pope? Is it reasonable to hold that the Pope is infallible? Why must Catholic priests be celibate?

These are some very crucial questions about the Catholic faith, among many others, asked by a good many people from other Christian communities. This eight-session course aims to help Catholics to better understand the Scriptural and theological bases for such Catholic beliefs which are usually difficult to explain. A workbook is also available for those who might want to refer to outlines while watching the talks (MYR20 / SGD8).
