How can I become a Catholic?


#1

Today i decided that i want to convert to catholicism from lutheranism. I have always felt a feeling , even after feeling dreadful sorrow for sins(for now i do not feel comfortable telling others about) that i have committed in the past. At the moment i am struggling, I go to a catholic high school and they offer mass weekly, i’ve been going whenever i see the day it is up. Some days the priest offers confession. I thought that if i went to the sacrament it would heal me, but i soon found out that only catholics may receive it, which in hindsight makes perfect sense since it is a sacrament. All i as is how can i step up and make a conversion, i feel as so i will be betraying my lutheran pastor and my family by doing this, but it looks to be the right path for me to take. I would greatly appreciate some help.
