I'm so excited, I was informed yesterday that I was approved to transfer rites (Roman Rite to Maronite Rite)!
I am cradle Catholic, but having been attending the Maronite Church for about six years.

Congratulations! Many blessings! I am a Roman who has found his home in the Maronite Church for the past three years.

Thank you! I feel blessed to be accepted. My pastor tried to discourage me as he feared that it would appear that he was taking members from the Roman Catholic/Latin Rite Church. My persistence over the years convinced him. I thought it was interesting the my transfer took place on St. Patrick's day considering I am of Irish descent.

Sorry it took so long. My priest does not discourage people, they are already discouraged enough. I did not have to request transfer or wait...I married a Maronite (I was a cradle RC).

So glad your safely home now.
