Another CoC-to-Catholic Journey Unfolds...

Erik, a now frequent poster on my board, has started a blog entitled Y Taith Cristnogol which is Welsh (Cymraeg) for “The Christian Journey,” to chronicle his journey through RCIA and, God willing, into the Catholic Church. Seeing as he's still a minor living under his CoC mother's roof, it should be interesting to say the least! It will take a lot of courage and conviction on his part, but I'm sure he's up to the challenge. Please keep him in your prayers, and visit his blog to follow him on his journey and offer him your support!

Can you convert without a parent's permission if you're still a minor?

I don't know! I was wondering the same thing...perhaps Erik knows.

I think the better question is- why are you up at 5 AM?

Fr. Rod said that I am an adult in the Church but I still need my mom's permission to do anything, and I did get her permission to go to the classes (you'll notice the difference).

At any rate, if anything, this should make for some good blogging!

That's 'cause Steph's in a different time zone. I'm in Cincinnati and I can assure you I wasn't up at 5 am! :)

Stephanie said...

Lol, I think my time on my blog is messed up anyway...I know for sure I wasn't up at 7 either!

Stephanie, if I remember correctly from your Conversion Story, you wanted to convert as a minor, didn't you?

Stephanie said...

Actually, I had just turned 18 :-/ I was talking online to hubby as a minor...but at that point I was trying to convert him to the CoC. It's when I went off to college to be closer to him that I started actually considering the Catholic viewpoint, and that's when I converted.

I bieleve that if this kid wants to convert, his will is righteous. Of course Church representatives will have to guide him in respect of his parents.

If anyone can find out what the real Catholic (and/or legal) answer to that is, I'd be real curious. I don't know any minors who want to convert to anything, at the moment, but I've seen a variety of situations in the past of conflict between parents and children over religion, and there never seems to have been a very satisfactory resolution.
