Hi, the Bishop in my Diocese has always responded to emails and letters from the people in my Parish. My Diocese is the CliftonDiocese and tge Bishop is Bishop Declan Lang.
The priest at my local Church is Father Isodore Obi. He originates from Nigera.
For a writing group, I was asked to write about the Catholic Faith. I wrote about all the 7 Sacraments, how I understood them and my believes. I then send a copy of the article to the Priest at my Church. I also prayed a lot to get fully confirmed into the Catholic Church.
My Church is St Peter's Church, Cirencester.

That is wonderful to hear. In my city most everyone is put in RCIA even if they only need to be Confirmed and have received Baptism and First Holy Communion in the Church. It would be unheard of to be exempted RCIA and we have had persons in RCIA that are well versed in the Catholic Faith, had read and studied for years, but here no exceptions are allowed.

They must attend RCIA no exceptions.

Glad to hear things went as they did for you.

Mary.

I was in RCIA from the beginning of January this year. I emailed the Bishop on 6 April 17 and he replied to ne on the 10 April.

There were also a whole group of my friends, around 15, praying for me to Baptized and Fully Confirmed into the Catholic Church.

I just had faith and believe that the Bishop would give the Priest at my Church permission to Baptize and Confirm me when the Priest thougt I was ready.

Congratulations for being a new member of the Catholic Church.
I grew up in the Episcopal church which I feel prepares you to be Catholic!
I began searching Catholicism in my 40's after not attending church for 30 years. I did
mostly self study so when I called my local Catholic church they fast tracked me and
I studied one on one with the RCIA director for 6 - 8 weeks. It was right after the Easter
vigil so the RCIA class of 2008 had just "graduated"! So she had time to spend with me.
Next July 2018 will be my 10 year anniversary!

Welcome home!

Thank God for answered prayer, I believe that
it was the PRAYERS of your Catholic friends
that prompted the Bishop to grant you the go-
ahead from the priest!!

Glory be to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the
beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world w/o end.
Amen.
