I had some questions regarding converting to the Catholic faith. Some background information about myself. I was baptized into another Christian church. I have already spoken to an RCIA director at my local Parish and plan on attending RCIA beginning in September.
The following is what I was looking at regarding to the process of becoming Catholic. If your outside of the United States then I understand the process may differ. I also understand that each Diocese may slightly differ.
“Persons baptized into another Christian church and now seeking full communion with the Catholic Church are also welcomed to participate along with catechumens in the RCIA in the process of learning about the Catholic faith and being formed in that faith. They bring to the process of preparation their prior experience of Christian life and prayer. For a baptized Christian, reception into full communion with the Catholic Church involves reception of the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation and then a Profession of Faith followed by the celebration of Confirmation and the Eucharist.”
So from what I can tell the process for a Christian who is already baptized is:
- Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation
- Profession of Faith
RCIA is still encouraged.
Does this sound correct?
