  •  UCC Pastor since 1989 (4+ / 0-)

    and I'm so, so sorry you ran into such a hateful situation!

    A large part of my congregation is, as well, formerly Catholic.   Some are now UCC members and leaders of our congregation.   Some have not formally joined but are still leaders and cherished linchpins of the congregation.   My spiritual director was a Sister, now a lay member of her order;  another pastor was also formerly a Sister.

    UCC or not, there are places that are more than welcoming.  If I'd been within reach, I'd have been more than happy to come to your mother's hospital room to baptise your child.   Sadly, I've heard of similar things happening in our area.
