Kim St Maurice: A Buddhist Who Became a Catholic Christian

March 15, 2004 No Comments

Kim was born in Vietnam to practicing Buddhist parents. As a child, she attended French Catholic schools. Later, she attended university in Montreal, Canada and lived in a Catholic student residence. After graduating, she met and married her husband, who was a Catholic. Though she agreed to baptize and raise their children as Catholic, she didn’t think she would ever become a Catholic. Her heart was turned to Christ and his Church by attending Mass with her husband and meeting Bishop Alvaro Del Portillo, the late Prelate of Opus Dei.
