May I attend a non-Catholic church once in awhile?


#1

I am the only Catholic in a family of Baptists. They are not very happy that I converted to Catholicism later in life. They’ve asked me to attend their church for special services but I am not sure if this is a good practice. I want to support my family in that I know they believe fully in God but I don’t want to put myself in a position of giving them the idea that I’m open to turning my back on my Catholic faith.
Thank you,
VTtchr

Hi,

You may attend special events like weddings. But that is not the place that you should even occasionally worship. You are a Catholic now.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
