As a head’s up, many of you knew me from the past…before I moved out of my parent’s house I could only be baptized non-denominational Christian. My parents heartily disprove of the Catholic faith. This is the second week after I moved out of their house (I’m now nearing my mid 20’s) and was finally able to attend mass at a Church nearby. But, of course I have a few questions…
Is my baptism invalid? I do not have a certificate anymore, was baptized by the women’s minister, not the church preacher. I do not remember if it was done in the name of the Trinity.
Is it wrong for me to take the Eucharist? A older woman I was with knew I had not been baptized Catholic but, indicated it was fine for me to do so. No one stopped me, but, a coworker revealed its considered a sin…and I need to tell the priest. Is this true?
Who do I share with and when that I am interested in looking at becoming a consecrated virgin or nun? When is it okay? I intend to join RCIA but, it may not happen until the fall…I fully intend to keep going to Sunday mass and the class (likely bible study with the deacon) every week. Should I already be telling the priest? I have been thinking of my possible vocation since high school.
Thanks. Any extra information is always helpful.
