Surprised to be a Catholic: the Journey of a “Cradle Episcopalian”

April 13, 2015

I am not only a new Catholic, but I am a surprised new Catholic, as well. I was born an Episcopalian — or, as we liked to call ourselves, “cradle Episcopalian” — and was baptized, confirmed, and married twice in the Episcopal Church. I raised my three children in the same faith. I never dreamed I would one day step out of that Church and find myself on a new journey that would take me into the world of the Roman Catholicism. ... more

February 10, 2014

Jason grew up in Florida with a broad Evangelical background.  He met his future wife in high school when she moved from Chicago at age 15.  Both had strong Protestant faiths but wrestled with two issues:  “once saved always saved” and communion being a symbol.  After they married, Jason and Nikki began a ten-year journey while having an active role in a local Baptist church.  They struggled to find authoritative teaching about birth control and eventually discovered JPII’s theology of the body.  Their young son’s interest in the saints, ... more

Coming Home: A Multi-denominational Adventure

August 6, 2012

I was born third of four boys to a family in Wisconsin; though most of my life growing up and starting my own family was spent just over the border in Minnesota. My father’s grandfather had emigrated from Namur, Belgium just after the American Civil War and joined America’s largest Belgian-American community in Door County, Wisconsin. My mother’s side had been in the U.S. much longer, descending from Scots-Irish ancestors. My grandfather, who died when my father was just 17, had married outside the Catholic Faith in ... more

One Church

June 20, 2012

Our Search for Truth

November 10, 2011

I have often considered God’s providence in my Baptist upbringing. Throughout my adult life a thankfulness for the gift of a moral Christian upbringing has grown within me. And I count myself blessed that I recognized this soon enough to express my thanks to my parents before they entered into eternal life. They passed on to me the foundations of faith in the One Triune God. ... more
