This is my first post so I’ll explain a little bit about my situation. Up until I moved to Kent at 10 years old, I did not believe in a God as parents did not and I was never brought up in a church. When I moved I became interested in Christianity and was encouraged to join the Girls Brigade and my local Methodist church by a school friend.After being offered (and nagged) to be baptised/confirmed I was in the February of 2010 without having really thought about it.
For the past few years I have had quite a rough time, with my closest friend attempting suicide and helping her out of severe depression. This made me question God massively and as a result I don’t really have a relationship with him. For this reason I feel as though I want to start afresh with my faith, and the Catholic church sticks out as a church which really focuses on Gods love. I have been in contact with a local Fr. about doing the RCIA programme and it is possible.
What I wanted to ask is this change possible, and whether anyone has done it? I realise this time that it s a much bigger commitment and I need to take it much more seriously than I did last time. Also I am 16 years old, which I know is not that old, but I do feel anxious as most of those taking their first communion are around 8 years old?
Thank you for your time
