You need to read the Word Of God for your answers. First you need to give your life to Jesus totally. Total Surrender. And ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins. Pray for guidance and ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to the Word Of God. You will find all the answers you need in His Word. Then find a good truth preaching church to go to. One that believes in the Baptism Of the Holy Spirit.

No priest will be able to tell who you are when you go to confession, so yes, you can go. If you're a Christian, you should be welcome in any Christian church.

If you were baptized Catholic, you're able to partake in Communion. Especially true if you're also Confirmed.

You can get married at a Justice of the Peace if you want to marry without a religion, or you can go to the preacher of your betrothed for the service.

One big rule in Catholicism is that you should go by your conscience. If your conscience objects, that's reason enough to not do something. If it's okay with your conscience, it's okay with the Catholic Church.

Easy. Get married at a venue (like a nice hotel or something, or a beach). You don't have to be devout in your religion to get married. Many people have the right to legally marry a couple, without being a priest. As for the reconciliation, you don't have to necessarily renounce your religion, it is perfectly ok to not pray every day and be dedicated, but still partake in a confession. Or if you are converting- maybe there are different people in that religion who will do the same thing. If not able to speak to a religious person for confession, perhaps speaking to a councilor/social worker instead wold do, if you explain to them your intention. Priests often times, are not equipped to give advice on family issues, as in many cultures they are not permitted to have a wive and children, so they are likely not the best people to go to for life advice, purely for guidance in what the scriptures would say on how to repent for sins. They are like an audiobook of the Bible who explain it in modern terms.

Why bother? If you leave your religion, what compels you to follow its practices, why leave at all? You don't have to do these things anymore if you don't feel what they teach.

Well I am a non-denominational Christian. I am not clear what you mean, however. If you are no longer catholic then I would assume that you attend a protestant church. If you are no longer Christian then going to church would be irrelevant.

Take it to God in prayer; you can go to any church you please, find one and talk to the pastor.

You dont need a confessional or a priest to confess sins to. Thats a Catholic fallacy. God ALREADY KNOWS. All you need to do is talk directly to Him. Appologize directly to God, intermediaries are not necessary. As for church, if you leave you religion (catholicism im assuming since theyre the only one i know who think the have to have intermediaries) then find another church. I suggest a nice contemporary non-denominational church. I ENCOURAGE you to leave catholicism and its fallacies and read the bible and talk with God on your own to find the truth in all the stuff youve been taught.

You must have had some experience or revelation that is behind your decision to look into seeking some independence from the Catholic Church. And you can continue and grow in your spiritual life by finding a good Bible teacher that can show you how to read God's Word for yourself, and the Holy Spirit will help you to understand how to apply what you learn to your own life. I'd like to remind you that God is omnipresent , He is with you all day long, He knows how you think, and what you think. You do not need to explain your motives to Him, He can see inside your heart, He will let you know if you do something that displeases Him, and of course you'll tell Him you're sorry. And in my experience He'll make you understand He forgives you. These things I'm telling you happen from the inside, there, in your heart , between you and God. Privately, where no other person is needed . I would like to suggest my Bible teacher is Les Feldick on a TV show called Through The Bible on the ION channel. He simple reads one verse after another, all the way through the whole chapter...no randomly skipping around. That way, we can understand the context in which the verses were written. A lot of times, it takes whole paragraphs and chapters to understand the point that's being explained. I can tell you that studying this way has brought me peace with the Bible and with God...and I want to say that it may be God pushing you to go out on your own, and find your own way to Him. There are plenty of Catholics who go to non-denominational churches, but still have wonderful memories of the traditions they grew up with. if you are being "called away" from those traditions , those who understand spiritual things will understand that you must follow.I wish you the very best! Bye!
