If you converted from Catholicism to a Protestant denomination (or vice versa), what swayed you?

I'm in my mid 20s, was raised Catholic, and fell away from my faith after college. My faith in God has always been strong, but my prayer life has never been structured. I care deeply about ethical issues, but not so much about technicalities when it comes to religion. I like the idea of belonging to a faith with a rich intellectual tradition (i.e. Catholicism), but the lack of a sense of community bothers me. The demographic at is mostly elderly and married where I'm located, so that might have something to do with it.
