My beloved husband and I are having a convalidation ceremony this Friday (hooray!) and are wondering just how much to give in our offering to the Church.
Anyone have any ideas on what’s appropriate? We had one meeting with our priest and plan to use the church basement for punch and dessert afterward…
Oh, a funny thing to share: when I was told in Confession that in order to keep receiving the Eucharist, my husband and I should refrain from making love until we were married in the Church, I said that we would but then said, “Oh, goodness, now I have to go home and tell my husband. He won’t be happy!” The priest then said, “It’s only thirty days…try 47 years!”
