Just a little background. My soon-to-be ex-wife (divorcing in June) and I are both lapsed baptized Catholics. Both rebelled in our teens and left the church. Both attended other churches, was not married in a Catholic church nor by a Catholic priest. Due to a schedule change at work, the only option for me it seems for church is to return to the Catholic church because of the Saturday evening mass. No other church in my area has a Saturday evening service. I believe this was God calling me back into the Catholic church as there has been stirrings for a while now. Went to confession last Friday and talked with the priest regarding the above issues that I mentioned. I have been given forgiveness, given penance and am able to return to taking communion even with the impending divorce (that was a huge concern of mine before returning to the church). The only thing he warned me against was that if I decide in the future to get involved with another woman to be sure that I have already done the lack of form. Otherwise, I will no longer be able to take communion until I do the lack of form. I guess another question would be is would I be required to teach my kids Catholicism? That will be a huge sticking point as far as their mom goes. She is custodial parent and she wants nothing to do with the Catholic church and doesn't want our kids raised in the Catholic faith. It would cause undue hardship on me and very likely the kids by extension. Also, I get the kids every other week. I will be going to mass alone and I know that my church does not have a place for the kids to go to, especially on Saturday afternoons, like other churches that I have been to. My kids are three and one. For me to bring both would not be easy for me alone as the three year old doesn't sit still for very long, and the one year old neither. Am I okay to go to Mass every other Saturday for this reason? If not, what am I supposed to do?
