Can someone please tell me if a non-catholic, divorced person can convert to the catholic religeon?
I was baptised as a baby into a protestant family, who were not church goers. In fact, most of my family are probably athiests.
My Grandfather was Catholic and often took me to mass with him as a child and I have always harboured a secret desire to practice what I have always considered to be my true faith.
I had a very short, unsuccesful, childless marriage in the 1990’s and was divorced amicably in 1996. I have since re-married a catholic man and have two beautiful sons. Both my sons have been baptised into the Roman Catholic Religeon.
My eldest son starts nursery at a Roman Catholic school this year and it has become pressingly important to me that he knows that we all, as a family, believe in and practice the same faith. I want to be able to answer all of their questions and help them understand the faith and to believe the way I do. I want to help them every step of the way to reach all of the milestones, i.e, sacramental programme, confirmation, communion etc, as it would give me so much happiness and pride.
At the moment I have a large sense of “not belonging” and it is high time I did something about this. I want to walk into church and actually feel like one of the “family”, to feel a true sense of belonging and not like the outsider I feel like at the moment!!
