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!

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.
