Ms Eleanor Lim says she hopes to be able to help her two children, who will be baptised with her at the Church of Sts Peter and Paul, grow in their faith.

She admits that it is difficult at this moment to say how she could be a good Catholic example to her children as she is new to Catholicism and still learning about it.

“I am just trying to imitate, to learn all the good points I think I should, and later on, teach my kids,” she said.

Ms Lim, 40, says she is currently reading The Imitation of Christ and hopes that through reading, she would be able to “change the way she lives and see things”.

Another way to learn more about the faith is by attending Mass and listening to homilies, she says.

She adds that she has learnt to forego the pursuit of material things and hopes to inculcate this in her two children, Justin, 10, and Trudy, 13.

Ms Lim has also taught her children the rosary and prays it with them.

Her husband, she says, is not yet ready to be baptised, but encouraged her to join the RCIA nevertheless.
