God be with you tomorrow morning! (and don't worry, He will be
) Re: the catechumenate, my advice would be to see if the priest seems/feels approachable for you (i.e. that from his sermon, etc. you feel comfortable enough to go up to him and introduce yourself), and then approach him after divine liturgy - not necessarily to ask to become a catechumen immediately, but rather to tell him a little about yourself, that you plan on attending liturgy there, and that you see the catechumenate in your future and that you are at a point where you have done all that you can without the guidance of a priest, the subtext being: please guide me! Another way to ask this is to ask if the parish offers Inquirer's Classes. For me, it became a matter of: I need someone with authority (i.e. a priest) whom I can ask any questions I have, and who will give me answers that will help me and not harm me (which at times are all that laypeople, though their intentions are always good, can provide). Furthermore, having someone who I am meant to obey is a wonderful relief, at least for this girl who second-guesses herself all the time! So I'd say, approach him at least to introduce yourself as a new person who will be attending liturgy, and then from there tell him as much as you feel comfortable, taking my suggestions or not.
Let us know how it works out!
