SJSM has been serving the Dover community since our earliest days. To widen our service further, SJSM is developing an integrated multi‐generation facility within our existing premises at 30 Dover Avenue. This new facility will serve both the young and the elderly, and provide opportunities for inter‐generational bonding between them. We are calling this facility Project Spring‐Winter (PSW). PSW will comprise two major components – Spring, a childcare facility and services; and Winter, a nursing home facility and eldercare services.
For information on how to donate to PSW, click here.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and is a 40-day period of preparation before Easter (without counting the Sundays in between). This Scripturally-inspired 40-day season is modeled after the time when our Lord Jesus fasted and prayed and overcame temptation while in the wilderness. Lent is therefore a time of soul-searching as we prepare ourselves for Good Friday, Jesus' death on the cross that purchased our salvation, and for Easter, His resurrection which brought us eternal life. Christians throughout the centuries have used Lent for prayers, devotion, repentance and fasting (e.g. from food or other things that have become too important in our life) in order to refocus our life on Jesus. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to do all of this throughout the year but the season of Lent reminds us specially to be more intentional in the practice of these disciplines.
Project ReachOut is a church-wide fundraising initiative for PSW which also seeks to grow awareness for our vision of an intergenerational community.
