How do I tell my mom I don't want to raise me kids in a catholic church ?

Tell her that you don't wish to raise them in the teachings of the church however you will raise them the way she raised you, to be kind, loving, forgiving , with integrity and character.

You should approach the subject in an indirect way and just say why you don't think you should raise your children in that religion.

However you want.
They're your kids ... and you don't have to answer to your mom, about how you raise them.

The only way to tell her is to just tell her! Your mom is not in control of your life or your kids, so you raise your children the best way YOU think is possible.

If you live with her, that may be the reason that she feels like she has the control over the way you raise your children, but your their mom, and you need to raise them the way you know that is best for them. Just tell her that you love her and respect the way she feels, but you have a different path for them.

Just tell her- they are your children not hers.

Just like that, they are your kids, it's your decision. Give her your reasons why and leave it at that. If she truly loves you, it should be all she needs.
