I’m a cradle Catholic who had left the Church. During this time, I married a non-Catholic and we’ve just celebrated our 9th anniversary.
Over the last few years, I’ve been seriously thinking of returning to the Church. This is mostly because of a serious accident that I experienced. It was my awake call.
I found a Catholic Church literally 2 minutes from my house. I had no idea there was a church so close by in the 10 years that I lived in the area.
I went I talked to the Catholic priest, and he explained dispensation to me. My wife had some questions, and he was happy to meet with us and explain some of the theology to her.
After some discussion, my wife and I decided to a small ceremony at the Church. My problem is: I can’t seem to get the priest to return my email or phone call. I’ve tried to not nag or be a nuisance, but this has been going on for a little over a month.
I dread having to look for another church, because most of them are so far away. I’m irritated and feel the situation is hopeless, and I feel this justifies my leaving the Church. On the other hand, I’m trying to give the priest the benefit of the doubt and hope at some point he’ll contact me.
I’m frustrated and just needed to vent.
