Our Lady of Perpetual Succour
Know about the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour
Most of us attend church every week without remembering where it all began, but it took more than seven years from conception to planning until OLPS Church build-in 1961. For the first time in 1954, the construction of a church outside of Katong attracted attention. At that time, it gets believed that the Holy Family Church could not accommodate the expanding congregation of worshipers in Katong and the still-rural Siglap, where more people were settling.
In August 1999, the church structure underwent reconstruction, and in December 1999, construction on the project got underway. The Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour has 1,600 seats now that it is air-conditioned. The ground floor area gets expanded to provide first-rate amenities, such as a new church kitchen, conference rooms, and a storehouse for the SVDP Conference. The church also has a columbarium with 2500 niches.
