Vocation Booklets

My Vocation Story

I was born on 15th December 1967. My parents wanted a name in line with the season, like Noel or Nicholas.

But, Mother Superior prayed and opened the book of names. Valerian was a minor Saint who saved the sacred vessels from persecution. I was named after him.

I had a happy childhood. My family lived in Marine Parade, so we spent time cycling and jogging along the beach. We attended mass at the Church of the Holy Family (CHF).
