Hi, Ryan —
Congratulations on coming to this
conclusion! Welcome to the Catholic
You need to consult your local Catholic
military chaplain. Make sure you
consult the *Catholic* chaplain.
They are accustomed to handling this
kind of situation. If you can't enter
soon, then you can take solace in
the fact that your vow to be received
into the Church, is as good as being
received should something happen
If you haven't already, I suggest
you read the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It will give you pretty much
all the knowledge you need to know,
to be received into the Church, although
the priest reserves the right to
catechize you further. In addition, it will
highlight any show-stoppers or red
flags for you. You need this information
anyway if you want to be a Catholic.
Mike Humphrey, our Web Administrator and fearless leader, use to run a free program that sent Catechisms to seeking Protestants and non-Christians but no longer has the financial or operational means to do this anymore. Nevertheless, if you wish to go deeper, consider buying a cheap copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to learn everything we believe as faithful Catholics.
