I am a Catholic who is dating a non Catholic, she has decided to go through RCIA courses; however, we will not enroll until next year for it. We’ve talked Catechism many times, and she understands what is a mortal sin, what makes one, and what sins are included within. We have both committed mortal sins, but I can receive confession. How am I supposed to help her receive absolution? What does the Church teach in this instance? Does she have to wait until she is initiated? She is baptized a Lutheran. She never attended because her parents were non practicing. She never received any catechism up until I introduced her to the Catholic Church?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
I apologize if this is the wrong forum sub section.
