Am I a Catholic?
I was raised, was baptized in, and was confirmed in the Evangelical Lutheran Church. In my 20s, I attended a Catholic chapel on a base where my husband was stationed. I asked the priest if I could take the Eucharist, and he agreed that I could, if I was confirmed as a Catholic. There were no classes, I took no instruction, I read nothing; I met with the priest once or twice and had a brief ceremony alone with the priest during which I was baptized a second time. I would like to know if, under these circumstances, the Church considers me a Catholic.
I realize that I'm a hopelessly ignorant Catholic, if so, and I would like to know how to proceed to rectify that. I don't know if I am eligible to take the classes that a convert would normally take, since I am divorced and remarried.
