Just wanted to say a quick hello.
Came here from G&S, hoping to explore Catholicism in a liitle more depth. I am new to Christ, about a year, eighteen months. There is a lot about Catholicism that makes sense to me, appeals to me but to commit, I need to be sure.

Will come back later and sort out my profile.... can I keep my religion as unknown, or just Christian, I'm not sure yet where God is leading me.

Thanks for the welcome guys :)

Well, a little about me..

I'm 45, 46 in July, married, in the UK, 11 year old daughter.

I joined G&S just over a year ago, been a Christian for about eighteen months. I have always believed in God, I just wasn't totally sure about Christ. I guess it just seemed to be too good to be true, y'know?
There are a lot of things, all just small details really, that I am figuring out about my faith, things like creation position (lean towards OEC/Progressive) and my religion.

I tried alocal Catholic Church and Mass was wonderful, I was totally captivated. The priest there holds to no salvation outside of the Church, which I struggle with if I'm brutallyhonest and regular attendance is a must, now that one I get. At the moment, I'm not ready to commit to Church and I want to explore the Catholic faith further. If I'm going to follow a faith I need to be sure.

(If any of you are interested in who I am, there is a (pretty long) thread over on G&S, My Journey. )
