road trip then possibly moving - capmchuck - 04-20-2020

Once this virus fog lifts and things start to get back to normal, I am planning a road trip to Sioux Falls, SD in an effort to see if it's somewhere to possibly move.  Ever since I became Catholic, my relations between friend and family have really become distant and somewhat toxic.  I have grown far apart from my parents and sister and I cannot imagine settling down back here.  Why I came back, only God knows.  I currently desire to have my own family (priesthood not off the table) and after much research and reading, Sioux Falls seems to be a very ideal place; politically, socially, economically, etc.  I truly believe in order to grow in my Catholic Faith, given my situation, I may have to sever all ties, seal my past, and start anew.

Care to share any similar experiences?

Thanks so much and God Bless.

All I can say is good luck to you - and my prayers, of course.  Plus, stay away from hog farming/processing for now...

A dear friend had difficulties with her family of origin after she converted.   

Did you have any luck finding a suitable place?

The priesthood comment is interesting.  If that is just a good young Catholic being open-minded, I admire you.  If you sense the Holy Spirit trying to get your attention  hopefully you are getting some guidance.   There are probably more than a few members here who have some experience responding to the Holy Spirit's promptings and invitations.
