After three years there, I had taken on many roles. I was the assistant youth minister, a Catechist, a Eucharistic Minister, a lector, and a Eucharistic Adoration Church-closer-upper. Yet, God made it very, very clear to me and to my wife that we had to walk away.
We had been given the impression by our priests there that we were the all-star Catholics. After all, we showed up every Sunday, we tithed, and we volunteered at the parish. But my wife and I will be the first to tell you, we still needed a lot of help.
We were searching for something, any parish to help us to grow in our faith. But where would we go?
