A Brief History of My Life as a Christian
I was baptized on October 8, 1961, Thanksgiving Sunday, by the Reverend Preston McLeod, at Knox United Church, at the age of about 5 months. Thus began my ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord. I was taught from an early age to pray frequently, and to ask God for the things I needed, and to give Him thanks for the blessings He gives to us. I was also taught to sing His praises with simple little children's songs, to be obedient to His commands, and to attend Church regularly.
I was a faithful attender at Sunday School, and won many Perfect Attendance Awards and Memory Verse cards. At the age of 8 years old, I earned my first Bible by memorizing several short passages of Scripture, including the Ten Commandments and The Beatitudes.
I became a full member of the Church on Palm Sunday, 1976, at the age of 14. From that point on, I became involved in many committees of the Church, taught Sunday School, and assisted with the many projects that were initiated by the congregation.
I first encountered the Catholic Church in 1983, and while at first, and for many years, I thought that I could incorporate Catholic spirituality into my Protestant lifestyle, eventually I realized that I had to become Catholic. I did so, after much reflection and study, on April 14 at the Easter Vigil, in 2001.
