CatholicMatch Matched Me With Nuns
I am in the back of the church ready to walk down the aisle, Pachelbel’s Canon in D is playing softly and everyone turns to look. I adjust my shawl, hold my flowers up high and then I say a little prayer that I don’t fall flat on my face in front of the entire church.
Am I the blushing bride ready to meet my prince?

Why I'm Joining The 'Habit-Wearing, Rock Star' Sisters
I haven’t always been Catholic. My dad would take my sister and me to church occasionally. I was excited for the donuts in the KC Hall after Mass!
It got to the point where I told my father I wanted to go to church every Sunday – probably still for the donuts. After completing “little kid RCIA,” as I call it, I was baptized at age 7.
The following year my younger sister decided to get baptized as well. A year later my father was granted an annulment from his previous marriage, and my parents were married in the church when I was in fourth grade.
