Tonight after the 5:30 pm mass, my husband and I had our marriage convalidated in our Parish chapel. I am a Catholic convert, he is a cradle Catholic. I went through the RCIA classes and since I was married before, went through the Marriage Tribunal process to have my first marriage annulled.
It was definitely worth all the struggle. Our Parish priest performed the Sacrament, my confirmation sponsor who is a Deacon and his wife were there…our youngest son who is also a convert was a witness.
It’s a short ceremony but it meant the world to both of us. Then it was time for a celebration and we all went out for dinner, including the other Parish priest.
I am so thankful to be Catholic…I am so happy I found my way home to the Church.
