TRIBUTES FLOW FOR MALAYSIAN NUN KILLED IN ROBBERY ATTACK

Sister Juliana Lim, who died following an attack in an apparent robbery outside a church in Seremban last week, has been described as having devoted her life to teaching children from impoverished and broken families.
This was among the many tributes paid to the Catholic nun at the wake held at the Visitation Centre in Seremban today, which was attended by almost 100 mourners.
Lim (pic) died at the Seremban Hospital on Tuesday, six days after she and another nun, were assaulted by an assailant with a helmet outside the Church of Visitation. She was 68.
Undeterred by a light drizzle, children accompanied by adults made their way to the centre to offer their condolences to Lim's family.
Church of Visitation assistant parish priest Father Gregory Chan led the tributes, describing Lim as someone who was strict but kind with the children.
Church of Visitation parish priest John Gnanapiragasam also paid tribute to Lim, whom he described as someone who gave freely of herself.

  • On Wednesday last week, Sisters Juliana Lim and Mary-Rose, 80, were believed to have been attacked by an assailant.
  • Lim is believed to have suffered the brunt of the assault after using her body as a shield to protect Sister Mary-Rose.
  • The assailant then snatched the women’s bags, which contained a Bible, prayer book, rosary and a small amount of cash.
  • Both the nuns had arrived at the church on Jalan Yam Tuan at about 6.15am in a car with two other nuns for the morning mass.
  • The two other nuns went to the grotto to pray while Juliana and Mary-Rose went to the main entrance where they were believed to have been attacked.
  • Both nuns were found sprawled on the stairs at the main entrance by the church caretaker who opened the doors a few minutes later.
  • According to the biodata provided by the Infant Jesus Convent, Lim joined the IJ Novitiate in 1964 and took her final vows as a nun eight years later.
She started teaching in 1968 and her postings included the IJ Convent schools in Alor Star, Batu Pahat and Malacca, where she taught until she retired.
She was then involved in non-formal education and tuition in Sentul, Port Dickson and Seremban from 2001 until two years ago.
The funeral service will be held at the Church of the Visitation at 1pm on Friday.
