    Hello! My name is Terry. I’m new on the Board. As my user name suggests, I am a theology graduate student at the University of Notre Dame. I’m a convert to the Catholic faith having been an assortment of Protestant demoninations.

    I look forward to being in on some great discussions.




    Peace be with you Terry,

    Welcome to the board! I think you’ll find this to be a warm and friendly board to be on. If I can be of any help in the future please feel free to ask.

    Welcome Terry! You are on Duke’s board as well, right?

    I’m glad you decided to check us out. <img src=” title=”Smile” />

    So, share a little bit of your journey to Catholicism. Which other denominations were you? Did you go to Notre Dame after you became Catholic?

    Nice to meet you!


    Dear Jon and everybody else,

    Yes, I’m on Duke’s board as well. I find reading and participating in these kind of discussions very helpful.

    What denominations have I been? Let’s see, baptized Presbyterian, then went to United Christ of Christ, Christian & Missonary Alliance, Brethen (Independent), Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod), Evangelical Lutheran Church and finally Catholic (which I have been for 17 years). My family was not supportive when I converted, my mother is still a firm Presbyterian. I took my Bachelors at a Missionary Church (evangelical) Bible College. I started my graduate work at Notre Dame last year.

    I had a “Road to Damascus” conversion to the Faith when I attended my first Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Fort Wayne, IN. I’m a cantor, choir member and catechist (8th grade – Confirmation). And, I work for the Diocese in the business office (until I am done with grad. school, then I will be placed as a D.R.E.). The Church is a very big part of my life.

    I love being Catholic and I love our Faith. My grad school studies have given me an even deeper appreciation of the treasures we have. This semester, I am taking Patriology. I now find myself lingering over the Creed during Mass, savoring each phrase with new understanding. We have so many riches in our Faith and I love passing them on to our Confirmation kids.




    Hello and welcome.

    I am Eldric IV over on Duke’s boards. Glad to have you.

    Your diocese places people? Wow, here you have to apply and interview at different parishes and the parish makes the decision if you are right for them or not.

    The Church has been a very big part of my life since high school and now I am finally relizing my dream of being a youth minister. It is a lot of work, but it is everything I wanted it to be and more. I am so excited that my full-time job is to share my faith with youth. I love it! <img src=” title=”Very Happy” />
