Not meaning to be nosey, but the above statement seems a little odd, given that your profile says your Catholic.

Can a Catholic not learn about Orthodox traditions?

The one thing i wonder is: when in your process is it recommeneded to begin fasting? People keep telling me that i should forget that now and just focus on learning and reading. Are they right?

I would wait until your priest brings it up.  He will let you know when it is time to begin.

Many, Many, MANY years!  Congratulations Kelly!  I will be sending Fr. D a request today that I join the catechumenate  Shocked

I want to be so named on the 15th, praying that Fr. D agrees to my request that it be the 15th and not the following Saturday!

Congratulations again Kelly!

Can a Catholic not learn about Orthodox traditions?

You said that at your Catholic parish "People are quite devout and religious, but the traditions they follow is not quite what I have come to learn as the Orthodox tradition". (See below.) I don't see why you would expect it to be.

Hello everyone, this is my first post.  Yey!

I'm a cradle Roman Catholic who have become Eastern Catholic.  But now I'm am looking at Holy Orthodoxy.  I don't know how serious I am yet, I am still challenging myself if I can "stomach" it.  I mean, it is not easy to change my beliefs about the Pope and the Catholic Church given I am a Catholic for all of my life.  But I have found greater spirituality in the Orthodox faith.  As an Eastern Catholic I tried learning from the Orthodox how to live the faith.  Unfortunately I find that those that are around me are not living what I have come to understand as the Orthodox faith and its traditions.  So I am trying to learn about Orthodoxy now and see if what I thought it was is really what it is.  And perhaps it can make me come to a decision to become Orthodox.

Welcome,

Be aware we are all at different places in our journey, so you will see a lot of different levels in any parish.  We believe the church is a hospital for sinners not a place for only those who are righteous!

Peace in your journey.
 Smiley

Thank you.  I understand that.  What I mean is, it is not like everyone is nominal in my current parish.  People are quite devout and religious, but the traditions they follow is not quite what I have come to learn as the Orthodox tradition.  It is more of an in-between of Roman Catholicism and Orthodoxy.

My Catholic parish is a Ukrainian Catholic parish.  Were you thinking I was referring to a Roman Catholic parish?

Wasn't trying to; just looking for clarification on what he said about his parish not following Orthodox tradition.
