From Sceptic to Believer – Br Shaun Lim

As a result of this prompting, I went on a personal pilgrimage to Rome Vatican, it was there that I had had another deep God-encounter and fell in love with the Church and all it represents. I felt the call to priesthood most intensely when I was in Rome. I broke down several times (crying inconsolably) while praying as I felt I was unworthy. But then, who among us is worthy?

From the Wilderness back to church – Br Justin Yip

At that point in time, I was still attached to my girlfriend and we were experiencing some problems in our relationship, in part due to this sense that I had that God was calling me to be His priest. I was extremely confused about what God wanted for me, about His will for me in terms of vocations. And so, at the end of that frustrating day, I forced myself to pray and poured all my frustrations to God. Thankfully, He answered my prayers and assured me that everything would turn out okay and that He was in control.


Beloved of my Father – Br Andrew Lin

For 10 years, this emptiness led me to search for love in the wrong places, turning to relationships with girls as a means of receiving love, hoping they could fulfil me. I placed my identity in my relationships, that only in being attached would I feel a sense of self-worth.

Thank God I’m Found! – Br Dexter Chua

I was baptized at 11 years old and joined the altar servers at my parish, St Michael’s for 13 years, before moving on to focus on my career. It was during this absence from ministry that I became a “lost sheep”, running away from Church for 2 years. But the turning point in my life came when I attended the Conversion Experience Retreat (CER) held at Catholic Spirituality Centre (CSC), which was conducted by then Fr William Goh.

A vocation call after my sincere repentance – Br Andre Tan

Sometime in Jan 2013, something in me started to stir. A longing to start praying the Rosary again. And I started and as I pray, I started to fall in love with the Rosary again. As I continue to pray the Rosary, the guilt in me started to grow. I started to recall all the sinful acts that I have done and how like a devil, I had even led friends to also committed those sinful acts with me, “embracing the YOLO (You only lived once) spirit”.
