I am being received into the Roman Catholic Church at the upcoming Easter Vigil and am counting down the days when I can finally be in full communion with the Church. Since making the decision to convert I have realised the extent to which this isn’t just a personal decision but one that will affect and shape my relationships, present and future. Over the last year I have been thinking more and more about how important it is for me to meet someone who shares my values and I feel that meeting someone who is herself Catholic would be a good start (although, of course, no guarantee).
I just wanted to ask if anyone had experience of how best to go about meeting Catholics of the opposite sex and whether they would recommend any of the Catholic Singles websites (esp. in the UK)? I currently attend a rather large parish church in the centre of Glasgow where the chance of bumping into people I know on a regular basis isn’t very large. I have attended a number of events held by the church for the recent Jesuit Novena of Grace but I would say that as 33 I was definitely one of the youngest people there!
Any suggestions and experiences (and, of course, prayers!) would be very welcome.
