Ms Doreen Houghton
It was through a friend that Ms Doreen Houghton joined the RCIA at Church of St Bernadette.
Her friend, who registered her for the programme and accompanied her during the entire journey, would also be her godmother.
Ms Houghton said she feels it was “God’s calling” which led her to the RCIA.
She added that it has given her a better understanding of Catholicism, which she had experienced as a student in a convent school.
The RCIA also helped her to get a better understanding of the reality of being Catholic, she said.
The journey was “easier … and smoother than I thought”, she recalled, adding that she now hopes to continue deepening her faith.
