About 6 months ago, I decided to pursue RCIA after nearly a year of asking questions and learning about the Catholic Church. I’ll be starting RCIA this year, but I still haven’t come up with a way to share my decision with my family.
My siblings and I were raised mainly as non-denom Christians, though we briefly attended an Episcopalian church. My mom was raised Catholic, but she chose to marry outside of the Church and was received into the Episcopalian church.
I strongly doubt that my decision will be received with hostility…I don’t have to worry about being kicked out of the house or anything like that. But I haven’t been able to come up with a good way to bring this up in conversation. Realistically, I don’t need** to tell them until I get engaged or baptize my first child…but I’d rather tell them sooner than later.
Any thoughts? Tips? Personal stories? It’s all appreciated!
