Hi,

Last Saturday 17 June 2017, I was baptized at my local Cathooic Church. Yesterday, 18 June 2017, I received my First Holy Communion.

Even though I only started R.C.I.A. in January 2017, I already knew a lot about the Sacraments, Mary, the Rosary plus a lot more. This is because I was bought up in a Catholic School, from the age of 7, but never been baptized.

I emailed Bishop in my local Diocese, and told him what I knew, my understanding of the Sacraments and my believes. Four days later. the Bishop replied to me to say that he had a talk with the Priest at my Church and also informed me that the Priest could fully Baptise and Confirm me into the Catholic Church.

I'm really happy that for me, I'm in the right place and feel at home.
