My name is Sophia Dookie and I have had the privilege of growing up in a loving environment with both parents and two younger sisters. We have lived in Petit Valley for my entire life, and our family attends St Anthony’s RC Church. As a member of the Catholic faith, I attend Holy Mass every week which led to my First Holy Communion, and Confirmation.
While attending Mass over the years, I found myself questioning my faith and maybe wanting to know more. An opportunity presented itself when I attended a seminar hosted by Singles for Christ (SFC). The theme was Beyond the Journey.
This struck me because at that moment in life it expressed exactly how I felt towards my religion. I felt as though I wanted to learn more and know how I could be closer to God and go beyond what he had in store for me.
