Challenges for Pastors Who Become Catholic – Andrew Petiprin
As an Episcopal priest who felt drawn by Jesus Christ to the Catholic Church, for Andrew Petiprin, the hardest questions for him toward the end weren’t theological, but practical. Would he be throwing his education and formation away? How would he support his family? Was there a place for his ministerial gifts in the Catholic Church? Had he misheard God’s call to ministry in the first place?
Andrew gives a window into his own experience struggling with those questions on his way into the Catholic Church as a way to encourage other non-Catholic clergy members who might be wrestling with the same sorts of difficulties.
