Are you a cradle catholic, convert, or revert?


#101

Cradle Catholic but only back practicing since August 2018.


#102

Convert and revert. Converted on my own accord from being a Methodist at age 7. Been away from the Catholic Church for decades, not converted to any other church, but attended Lutheran services with my wife for a few years. I came back to the Church faithfully about 5 years ago.


#103

In the process of converting, about to start RCIA.


#104

Raised Catholic, left the faith in my early twenties, about 30 years ago.


#105

Baptized at 2 years old and raised Catholic. I left the church years ago and swung to the opposite side of the pendulum, getting involved in the darker side of the occult etc. I certainly never expected to be actively trying to return. I found myself drawn to a beautiful Gothic style church in San Francisco a few months back and I thought I’d go in and have a look at the architecture and art. The church was locked (it was just at dawn - I’m a morning person :slight_smile:) but I still felt like I had to go in. So I ended up going back to my hotel for a bit and came back in a couple of hours. Something just really compelled me to sit down and stay for the mass. I sat there and just started seeing where I was at in relationship to this “something” I felt there. I dont know - I certainly never intended to be returning home with this desire to start searching for God. I’m struggling ALOT but I’m doing my best to return to the church. Funnily enough, I never actually looked around at the art. I’ll have to do that next time.

#112

born and raised in a very catholic environment, but I’ve left the church to become LDS, then went to a Baptist church, then went to a Lutheran church. Yeah I’m not the most religiously stable person. :smile:


#113

Well, it’s good to have your hear. The door back to the Catholic Church is always open. Let us know here in the forum if you have questions, complaints, and / or things you want to discuss about Catholicism. :slight_smile:

#117

I was a CRADLE Latin Rite Catholic but a CONVERT to the Maronite Rite of Catholicism as of March 17th, 2018!


#118

I’m a Cradle Catholic. I was baptized as an infant. I was an altar boy when I was very young. When I was about 12 my mother left the Catholic Church and forced my sister and myself to attend a church called Springs of life. It was absolutely terrible, I would always stay with my Grandparents or my great Grandparents on the weekends so I could go to mass with them. Unfortunately my mothers breaking away from the church stopped me from having my conformation at the age of reason. Although last year I finally was confirmed and it felt so good. :blush:


#119

I’m a convert & a revert. Converted in 1999- my marriage ended 7 months later. I fell away from the church shortly after-I stayed away for 17 years. I came back to the sacraments January 2018. I will never leave again. My faith is the most important thing in my life. It’s been a hard road to walk back but I keep pressing on!


#120

I’m a (daily struggling) revert since 2011.
