Catholic by Choice:
Why I Embraced the Faith,
Joined the Church,
& Embarked On the Adventure of a Lifetime


Join us this evening as Austin poet Richard Cole takes us on his journey of spiritual discovery and self-examination. His new book, Catholic by Choice, provides a funny and joyous look at adult Catholic conversion from the point of view of a modern convert, telling a deeply personal yet relatable story of discovery, doubt, and finding a place at God's table.

Richard Cole initially sess his trip to a monastery in western Texas as a retreat--to check out for a few days, maybe a chance to catch up on his reading. Instead, Cole embarks on a zigzagging roller coaster of emotion and examination as he discerns, dissects, and discovers the incredible vibrancy of the Catholic community. Catholic by Choice provides a funny and joyous look at adult Catholic conversion from the point of view of a modern convert, telling a deeply personal yet relatable story of discovery, doubt, and finding a place at God's table.

RICHARD COLE is the author of two collections of poetry: The Glass Children and Success Stories. His poetry and prose have been published in The New YorkerPoetryThe SunHudson Review and Image Journal: Good Letters. He works as a business writer in Austin, TX.
