I’m not sure if this is the right place for this, but you guys have been so gracious and Godly in your responses to my other thread that I thought that this would OK.
I’m getting ready to check out a Catholic Mass for the first time. As a life long Protestant, I’m a little anxious about the whole thing . . . I’ve been in Pentecostal / Evangelical churches since I was born.
I really need to find a way to be sure that my local Catholic Church is orthodox before I check it out. I’ve never seen a Mass or even set foot in a Catholic Church, so I wouldn’t know the difference between a “liberal” parish and an orthodox one. Is the Priest in line with the Magesterium of the Church? I would hate to have my first experience be negative because of an indifferent priest or a flawed Eucharist.
Is there some sort of “lookup” for Catholic Churches and priests? Have any of you ever visited the Church of the Redeemer in Mechanicsville, Virginia?
My God bless you all in His infinite goodness,
