Rick Howick: Former Presbyterian
Rick was born into a Methodist family, which left because of a parish scandal. At the age of 13, bought a King James Bible after watching a TV evangelist. Later he joined a Baptist church but left it in college because of questions over fundamentalism. He then attended a Presbyterian church, which had no problems with his questions. He was accepted as a student in a liberal Presbyterian seminary that wished to broaden its student body. Rick’s journey to the Catholic Church began through his study of Church History, the early Church Fathers and the realization that the ancient Church was Catholic and the guardian of orthodox Christianity.
