Telling my family


I am in the process of converting to the Catholic faith. I told my parents some weeks ago, but now I need to tell the rest of my family…

It seems like a huge task, and rumors are beginning to spread already, so I might have to do it soon. Please pray that I get the strength and courage to do it.

Praying for you. This to shall pass. Trust in God. :slight_smile:

God bless,


I had to do the same thing 6 yrs ago and I’ll be praying, praying, praying as you walk through this part of your journey. God bless.



Your intentions will be in my prayers.***

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen


Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.


Holy Spirit I ask You to powerfully and lovingly assist this dear brave person to inform the family. Prepare the family to receive the decision with love and tolerance. Open their hearts and minds to respect and support. Your call to a soul is more important that other’s opinions. Please give them all trust in this truth.
