I am new here and just posted my hello over at Meet and Greet. I come to these forums because I am a Methodist and am considering converting to Catholicism. I was baptized and confirmed in the Methodist church when I was a child but my church has always seemed to be lacking. Often it feels like a social club or networking group that just happens to mention God or Jesus now and then.
A few weeks ago, my husband, daughter, and I attended Mass at a tiny Catholic church near our new home. When we walked in, a man was leading his children in reciting the Rosary before the Mass began. We joined in. As I prayed, a feeling of deep peace filled my soul.
Since then we have attended Mass every Sunday and I pray the Rosary before work each morning. I feel such a profound feeling of peace when I am at Mass or reciting the Rosary. I can’t describe it, but I feel like I am finally finding the answers I have been seeking throughout my life.
I am considering RCIA classes and have come here for answers and prayers. Has anyone here converted from a Protestant faith, particularly Methodism? I would love to hear from you. I welcome prayers as I make this choice, too. Thank you.
