The most church I had was as a Methodist for about 3 years as a kid, otherwise I avoided Christianity like the plague until around 2017. As of right now, I have no friends who are Catholics, my wife is non-religious, my sister, my parents are all irreligious. I'm basically alone in this. My godfather moved to England right after I was baptized/confirmed. So all I've had to lean on for any sort of Catholic social networking are places like this forum. Otherwise it's a lot of reading and praying on my own at home.

You aren't alone.  :)

:D I see what you did there.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
