CSSUPM would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of the late Mr. Marcus Lian. A beloved father, educator, and devoted Catholic. He was the CSSUPM president in '84/'87. He was a hero - he built the community. Mr. Marcus exemplified "I live, not I, but Jesus lives in me." Together, let us lift him up in prayers. May you rest eternally in God's loving arms. Thank you, Mr. Marcus Lian, for everything that you had done.

"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." - 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

New Theme, New Dreams


As you all have been informed, in conjunction with the Year of Mercy as announced by Pope Francis, the EXCO team has deliberated, and chose "LOVE AND MERCY IN ACTION" as our new theme for the year 2015/2016.

Now, it wasn't easy to come up with a phrase to represent us all as a whole, but after meticulous hours of reflection of ourselves, and our community, we realized that all of these unfortunate events after events that occurred in our lives, and our surroundings, pin-point to two major lacks; MERCY AND LOVE. Without both, we will fail to understand each other, we will be spiteful towards ourself and our neighbours. Heck, these two are the very foundation of Christ's teachings.

So, this year, let us make this our mantra to always love each other as brothers and sisters. No matter where we came from, our background, the colour of our skin, the language or dialect that our tongue conveys, despite it all, let us be kind towards each other. Make effort in understanding our brothers and sisters, and never leave a sheep to wonder on its own. Practice the three types of love; Phileo, Stroge, Agape and apply it in our lives. Together, we will grow into a strong, loving, and merciful community by God's grace.
