Hello, I’m not sure if i’m posting this in the right place, but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Until just before last Christmas, I, along with my Husband and our children had been attending an Evangelical Church where we became Christians over 8yrs ago. For various reasons we begun attending an Anglican Church ( they describe themselves as Evangelical Anglicans) so aside from the traditions of the Church of England it was much the same as before.
However, since feb/March time I have become increasingly interested in the Catholic church ( as a direct result of looking into the traditions of the Church of England) one thing led to another and I now feel hugely at odds with my Protestant teaching. Untill recently, I had never thought to look into Church history!
My husband has been supportive, although he doesn’t fully share my views, but he now thinks it time I visited a Catholic church. We have no Catholic friends at all, all are Evangelical or Anglican at the very least, and we don’t even know a neighbour or work collegue. I have been on to the website of our Parish Church and the Priest writes on there that if we have any questions about the Catholic faith or if we worship at a different church in the town feel free to contact him. If I knew someone to go to mass with, I would, and then speak to him, but having never attended mass in my life I really don’t want to go in without contacting the priest first as I wouldn’t have a clue what to do!
I am not a stupid woman, but every time I go to write him an email I just can’t think what to say without writing my whole life history! I just wondered if any one else had been in a similar situation or had any words of advice or encouragement.
Sorry the post is so long!
