On September 6, 2020, the nine Brothers from St. Joseph’s Institution and St. Patrick’s communities gathered at St. Patrick’s for their sector gathering. It has been a tradition in Singapore that Brothers from two communities convene on the first Sunday of every month. This month’s gathering is something special because of four reasons: the birthday celebration for Br. Nicholas Seet FSC and Br. Michael Broughton FSC, the retirement from school of Br. Nicholas, and welcoming for Br. Kino Escolano FSC who joined the St.Patrick’s Community last August.
As the chair of directors’ association in Singapore, Br. Nicholas presided over the meeting and facilitated a short personal sharing. This gathering becomes an opportunity to share with each other our short reflection from the past month, talk about important matters about the sector, give updates about each community and celebrate fraternity in a simple meal fellowship. Each community takes turn in hosting the gathering. Next month’s venue would be in the SJI Community. (Text & Photos: Br. Kino Escolano FSC)
