The Journey Of The Catholic Church In Malaysia: 1511-1996 By Sr.Maureen K.C Chew,IJ
Stemming from a long overdue  need to have a historical record of the Malaysian Church from its beginning when Catholicism was introduced into the country with the Portuguese conquest of malacca in 1511, to its survival and growth through all the political, socio-economic, and religious changes  of the past four hunndred and eighty five years, this book  brings together the history of the catholic Church in Peninsular and East Malaysia.  
Published in 2000, this book traces the journey of the Catholic Church in Peninsular Malaysia, and Sabah and Sarawak, documenting events that shaped the Catholic Church in Malaysia and how it came to be what it is today. 
May all those who read this historical book, read also the signs of the times … to feel the same zeal which set the ‘ball rolling’ in 1511.”
(Cardinal) Soter Fernandez
