Good afternoon everyone,
I have a few questions that I am hoping you can answer for me. I did a search prior to posting but could not find any posts that matched my exact situation. I was raised Baptist but was never Baptized. I married in 2001 and was divorced in 2004. We were married in a Methodist Church because my former wife was Methodist.
Two years ago I finally met and married the love of my life. She was born and raised Catholic but has not actively practiced in several years. We were married in September in a Christian non-denominational ceremony. She was never married prior and neither of us have any children. How will the Catholic Church view our marriage? I am going to begin the RCIA this coming summer when the new classes form and begin. Am I going to be politely told that since I am divorced I am not welcome? Is it possible the church will never recognize our marriage?
Ironically, I attended a Catholic Military High-School. I attended Mass but did not participate because of my Baptist affiliation. (That was a long time ago, I am 36 now).
