The Harmony Games and SG 50 celebrations held at Bishan on Sat, 7 Feb 2015 was hosted by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore, headed by His Grace Archbishop William Goh. This event is jointly organised by the Archdiocesan Catholic Council for Interreligious Dialogue (ACCIRD), Catholic High School and Guangyang Secondary School. It was also supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) and the National Steering Committee on Racial and Religious Harmony.
The event with the theme “Regardless of Race or Religion” is a day of celebration of Singapore racial and religious harmony coinciding with SG50 celebrations for the year. Several of our churches participated in the competitive games of soccer and telematch. There were also food and funfair stalls at the two covered pavilions at the intersection of Bishan Street 11 and Bishan Street 13 to liven up the event. MCCY Minister Mr Lawrence Wong was the Guest of Honour for the event which ended with a lunch with other religious and community leaders and prize giving for the game winners at Catholic High School (Secondary) hall.
We are deeply grateful to the organisers for their diligent and dedicated efforts in making the event a success, memorable and enjoyable to all who participated.
