A Catholic journey to Paganism
Many of us move from one denomination to another, but most of us don't journey quite this far... this is Katie's story.
Although her Catholic identity is part of her heritage, she no longer calls herself a Catholic.
America has a large group of "cultural" Catholics who no longer attend parish churches, either for doctrinal reasons, because they don't like the church's stance on various issues. Recently, the abuse scandals have also been a factor.
What happens to these Catholics? Do they pick other denomination to call home? Or do many simply not become part of another worshiping community? Who is tracking them?
Her story is unique in some ways, and also, perhaps, very much like yours. Feel free to share.
