I'm not sure whether this is the right forum, but here it goes I suppose.
Ive wanted to be Catholic since my now ex-boyfriend introduced me to it. Essentially he gave me the basic ideas, still answers my questions to this day, and I decided that Catholicism fitted my beliefs and wanted to go through with becoming Catholic. It really makes me happy, and I enjoyed Mass whenever me and him got to go.
Only thing is, I've yet to tell my parents. I'm going to Uni in 2 months, and Ideally I wanted to do it then, so I'm out of reach y'know...if they disagree or don't like the idea.
But Ive no idea what to say. My mother, well, she dislikes any form of Christianity as she was forced to go to church as a child and hated it. As a result, she couldn't care less what religion I became - as long as it wasn't christian.
My dad - he was brought up Catholic, enjoyed it, but never fully embraced it. So I don't think my issue would be with him.
Just wondering whether anybody who has converted recently or in the past could give me some advice on whats the best approach to this.
