Hello from a long time lurker…this may be a simply answered question, but I’m struggling and need some help with it.
I’m a cradle Catholic as is my family, but my Mother’s family (maternal grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.) are mostly Presbyterian. Next weekend, we will be going to visit them for my Grandmother’s 80th birthday and our stay will include Sunday. In the past, we have always gone to Sunday service with them. I know that it is improper to receive their communion as we are NOT in communion with them doctrinally, but I’m beginning to wonder if we should attend at all.
I don’t want to cause any arguements or trouble within my family (esp for my Mom as they still don’t like that she converted when she married my Father), but I also don’t want commit a sin or give the impression that I agree with their church esp. to my 5 yr old daughter.
BTW, we will be attending Mass at the Catholic Church that Sunday regardless.
