This week I have been speaking in Austin Texas and College Station Texas (A & M University with an incredible number of priestly vocations!) I came to support Catholic Radio — Ten Wrenn with Catholic Radio in Austin and Dennis Macha as he is well on his way to putting up an FM Catholic Radio station in College Station.
I spoke today at a Baptist church — well, let me explain. No Baptist church has ever invited me to speak, but like me, THIS Baptist church is a conver–not the congregation, but the building. It was built and used as a Baptist Church with the baptism dunking tank, the communion cup holders in the pews and all.
But this Baptist church building decided to convert and is today a Catholic Church! It has beautiful statues, a gorgeous crucifix, holy water fonts, a large marble altar and a tabernacle right in the center up front (see picture)! I felt right at home in more ways than one!
I started my conversion story this morning by saying that I was not the only one that converted — even this former Baptist church converted to the Catholic faith! I felt right at home!!
