Hello, first let me take a second to apologize for my first post being so long. Once I got started, I had to just let things out.
About 7 years ago, I became a catechumen at an Eastern Orthodox church. I am a bilateral amputee from birth, and have no legs from the knee down. The church was very old and no part of it was wheelchair accessible, from the entrance to the sanctuary, bathrooms etc... After about a year of having to carry my chair up the stairs on my knees, then crawl around on my knees inside the church, it just became to difficult to continue attending there.
I left and fell out of church altogether, and have drifted around since, even falling into Buddhism for a few years.
I have recently felt the call back to the faith, and have found a Greek Orthodox Church about 2 hours away, that I plan to visit soon for Divine Liturgy. Since it's that far, I will not be able to go every Sunday.
I'm not sure what to do at this point, I'm not sure where I stand as a “former” catechumen, do I need to start all over?
And can I be a member of the Church if I can't attend every Sunday?
I'm not sure what to do to even begin returning???
Sorry this was so long, I would like to ask for our prayers for guidance.
