“When my friend first talked to me about joining Landings, I said no. It didn’t fit into my work schedule. A part of me missed the Latin Mass that I used to attend but I didn’t enjoy planning my weekends around Mass. But God had started calling. Eventually, I left my job to backpack. On […]

“Seven years ago, I met my girlfriend who brought me to the Catholic Church. Two years ago, I got baptized but all along, I had never fully believed in God. I found no answers in what I had difficulty believing in. My priorities were: money, career and personal time. I worked really hard for them […]

“Strangely, I have always prided myself as a Church-going Catholic and assured myself that so long as I’m in, I’m never out. It wasn’t until troubles hit home that I admitted I had long left the Church spiritually. My relationship with God took backstage since 2005 when I focused only on my career. While God […]

“I remember having a terrifically carefree and liberating time studying in Virginia and then working in NYC. I was financially and socially independent, career driven and had a full social calendar. But whenever I was in my apartment, I felt empty. I remember that. Then abruptly, I had to return to Singapore because Dad got […]

“My relationship with God had always been purely transactional. I give my time in prayer and service; He returns blessings. That went on till I started working. If my faith life mattered little before, it altogether disappeared when chasing my career became my only priority, above my family and kids. Everything else in my life […]

“I never left the Church because I never really entered it. Getting baptized at 22 made no difference to my life at all. I was busy travelling, going on exchange programmes and starting work. I had left my home in Vietnam when I was 14, had no real concept of love, and no need of […]

“For the first part of my life, it was great. I had a close-knit community in USA – which I left behind when I left for college. Years passed I became a young atheist travelling around Asia, having the time of my life. Until my God moment: I had married Lisa, and we didn’t have […]

“My relationship with Landings was once rather ‘on-off’. I first left when I felt I couldn’t be a blessing to someone I was journeying with, and that broke me. Then I left again when I got retrenched and needed to devote myself to job-seeking. Sadly, I had faced retrenchment twice but wonderfully, the second time […]

For 45 years, I never went to Church and I was scared when I first came to Landings. The people at Landings encouraged me: “Take baby steps, one at a time.” You know what else they did for me? They offered to pick me up and go to Mass together. I live in Woodlands… these […]

“It was a Taoist ‘master’ who told me to return to Jesus. Life had been good after I ‘graduated’ from Confirmation. Happily, I declared myself a free thinker but also explored different religions. My beliefs? Do good, be kind, and don’t hurt anyone. I only approached that ‘master’ because of health concerns – who would […]
