Hiya everyone

I feel very blessed to announce on Easter Saturday I will be welcomed into the catholic faith.

Ive been doing the RCIA course - and attending Mass - and reconciliation - and ive found it very peaceful and it feels like home!

I went to a catholic school so ive had this upbringing through school. I was baptised anglican and my mum still attends church every week etc - I used to be a alter girl for the anglican church.

This feels like coming home to me - wont go into all of the reasons but it really does feel right

Just thought Id share that smile.gif

Oh and a question??

How do you get your marraige validated by the catholic church when you werent married in one? this would mean a great deal to me

Louise

p.s; ive still got ALOT to learn - is it cool to ask questions here? are there any catholics if I have questions?

That's a Wonderful thing and how special to be welcomed on Easter Saturday.

We were married by a celebrant and my family's parish priest told me that if I wanted the church to recognize it, itwas easily done via a short meeting with him and possibly one other member of the church. I never followed it up so unsure of the details.

Congratulations! I'm not Catholic myself so can't help with any questions, but understand how great it is to have a faith and a faith community that you can belong to.

Thankyou everyone and thanks BEACHGURL thats handy information - I might follow that up - hubby can take it or leave it but would do it for me so long as it wasnt overally cumbersome. Ill have a chat to the priest. smile.gif
