I ask you to pray for me in this trying time. I am currently a Christian student attending Northcentral University for my doctoral in business administration. I have been struggling to make a decision about joining the St. Joseph Church in Pine Bluff. I come from a family of Baptists, and I am afraid of attending this church. I have felt a strong pull toward Catholicism. I have studied its rich history, and I have believed it to be the truth my love for God and Christ never waivers. I love you all and please accept my humble apology for contacting you in such a way.
