Re: Any Catholic mamas of many?

I am posting here instead of the FB group because I can only access FB on my phone (I am on break at work) and it is hard for me to type on there:-)

As you may or may not recall I was formerly a member of a local Episcopal church, but I had become disillusioned with the direction the church was going and it ultimately broke away from the Episcopal Church (as did the "state" Diocese). Once that occurred, I knew I would never return.

Well, I had been feeling a real pull to get back into church and take my three youngest (oldest is on her own, 2nd oldest away at college). A few days ago, I actually read an article on the front page of the state Diocese paper (it still comes from when I was a member) and was remarking to my husband how ridiculous the lawsuit to keep land that belongs to the church is etc now that they chose to break away. Anyway, I usually just recycle that paper right away, but that day, I read it.

I came to work and went to the Episcopal Church's website and put in my zip code under find a church. Lo and behold a church I had never heard of popped up! Apparently a new congregation formed less than 2 years ago with the blessing of the Episcopal Church and it is in the process of working towards becoming a full fledged parish!

I am planning to attend services on Sunday. I hope not to be disappointed, but this really feels like a sign and I am not much for signs per se. Please pray for our family that I am being led in the right spiritual direction!

Thanks for letting me share and ramble

PS A few days ago, I also e-mailed the parish priest of a local Catholic Church that I have visited with some questions about attending and RCIA, but I have not heard back from him. If I ever hear back from him, I may have some decisions to make, although there would be no harm in attending the classes either way.

We are Catholic and I know there are several other Catholic moms of many on here. Not sure what you mean about not being disappointed on Sunday because I am unclear what you are expecting. But I hope you find it . I would call the parish office during office hours and ask for father or the RCIA director to call you. The problem with email is that it can get lost with so many other things going on. Good luck on your journey.

Thank you. I meant disappointed in the new Episcopal Church. It was a painful break from my old Episcopalian Church.

I guess that was confusing since I mentioned also inquiring about the RCIA call at the catholic Church.

No. That was why I was inquiring about the RCIA. I was Episcopalian starting in my early 30s. I did attend Mass several times. In the Catholic priest's defense, he does have a large parish to serve by our area's standards (we don't have a large Catholic population).

I went to the new Episcopal Church's services yesterday, and they really are in alignment with the parent church, which was a deal breaker for me with my former church (they broke away). They were very warm and welcoming. The congregation is only 14 months old! The Diocese is due to grant official Mission Church status next month. It is certainly very different from the very large congregation that I was formerly a part of!

I am going to go again next week and be open.

Re: Any Catholic mamas of many?

We're a Catholic family expecting our 5th. DH and I were both raised Catholic from birth and we both came from big families. This is actually my 7th pregnancy; I've miscarried 2.

We've never set a limit on how many kids we wanted and we know we take too many chances when it comes to using NFP, so we accept each one as the gift that they are.
