Coming from a different religious upbringing, I began RCIA with little knowledge of God or the Catholic Church and even less of an understanding about how they fit into my life. God is so merciful to give me a second chance to re-attend the RCIA after 20 years!
Everyone in the RCIA, especially team leaders, my sponsor, Lilian and Godmother, Sister Mary were instrumental in my conversion to the Catholic Faith at the Easter Vigil. They were always available to answer questions and offer guidance and support. Every Sunday night, I learnt about the history of our faith, the life and teachings of Jesus and the struggles He endured. I was introduced to different forms of prayer, meditation and ways of communicating with God through the gospel, Eucharist and the Sacraments. Through group sharing, I learned how to recognise the presence of God and apply the teachings of Jesus Christ to my daily life. Praise The Lord!
Above all, I want to thank God for his unconditional love and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ for bringing me and my RCIA friends to the OLPS family and the Catholic faith. On reflection I can see that our parishioners are truly living out OLPS’ mission of ‘striving to follow Christ and be his witness, reaching out to all through love and service’… I am blessed to be part of this family.
