Interfaith Relationship

I am 23 and in a relationship with a boy for the past six months. We love each other very much and given time we want to see our relationship through to marriage. The catch is that he is Catholic and I am Hindu and while his parents are fine with us being together my father is against an inter faith/ caste marriage and wants me to have an arranged marriage… My father is a single parent and says I will hurt him if I continue this relationship. I do not want to hurt my father but I also love my partner. Is it wrong that I want to continue seeing him and hope to convince my father eventually?
