In conjunction with the Feast of Corpus Christi and as a means of promoting awareness and appreciation of the Blessed Sacrament, the Faith Ministry of the Church of St Thomas More conducted a four week virtual study programme on the Eucharist from May 7 to 28. The study programme helped the participants to realise the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the consecrated host received at every Mass. Each session began with 10 minutes of silent adoration before the Tabernacle. Participants quietened themselves and spent time with the Eucharistic Lord. One of the participants shared that on the first day, he felt the 10 minutes were very long but as the weeks went by, he felt that he did not have enough time for adoration.

To complement this study programme, the Faith Ministry, together with the Altar Servers of the parish, put together a Liturgical Exhibition which featured most of the sacred vessels and vestments used during Mass. The exhibition on June 15 and 16 was well received by the parishioners. The catechism students too learnt about the sacred vessels and vestments.

Parish Priest Fr Raymond Pereira said that the exhibition had increased his faith and commitment to the priesthood, and brought home that no one should ever take the Eucharist for granted. Due to the overwhelming response received, the exhibition was extended to June 23 which coincided with the Feast of Corpus Christi and Triduum of the Parish Feast of St Thomas More in which parishioners had a wonderful opportunity to participate in the Silent Eucharistic Adoration and the Eucharistic Procession.
