Stephen and Marian Lim
For couple Stephen and Marian Lim, the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) has given them a deeper understanding of God’s love.
Speaking in Mandarin, Mr Lim said the classes have helped them understand Christ’s teachings better, and learn to be more generous and ready to forgive others.
He said he has tried to apply what he had learnt in RCIA to his work and marriage.
For example, there is now greater understanding between him and his wife.
Mrs Lim, she said she has experienced joy in her life and has even got rid of some bad habits.
The couple, who have already been baptised as Christians, will be received into the Catholic Church this Easter.
They also shared little miracles in their journey.
Mrs Lim recalled that they were unable to attend the Mandarin RCIA at Church of Our Lady Queen of Peace on Thursday evenings due to work commitments, and had to attend the Mandarin RCIA at Novena Church instead.
She prayed that they could continue at Queen of Peace, and one day their work schedules were adjusted, allowing them to attend classes.
The couple’s relationship with their daughter has also improved, she shared.
Meanwhile, the couple are focusing on their prayer life by participating in devotional prayers. They are also thankful for the prayers and support they have received from their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
