Sorry to hear about your misadventure, but your recollection of it had me LOL!
The priests at my church warn against anyone having anything to do with the new church. (Although I say "my church", it's not actually correct. My wife, daughter and I are not yet baptized, but are waiting until Holy Saturday, which I understand is the traditional day for new converts. We have covered almost all of the basics in our catechism classes, and we're looking forward to April 19th.)
What glorious and delightful news! How is it that you found the traditional Faith on the first try? Tell me more about your church... Is it indult, independent, or SSPX? Just curious.
Thank God for showing you the Faith!
