I am very happy to have found this community!
I am wondering if I will need to go through RCIA to receive Confirmation. A little bit of background..
My mom was raised Catholic, my dad attended various Protestant churches growing up, they were married in the Catholic church. I was baptized Catholic, received my first communion, and went to Catholic school for part of my elementary education. My family moved, and for various reasons stopped attending Catholic Mass. We started going to a Methodist church for a while, and eventually stopped attending church altogether, other than on Christmas and Easter. Lately I have been having a strong feeling (which I can't really explain) that I need to return to the Catholic church. I am moving out for college in a few days. I read that there is a Catholic community on campus that offers RCIA. There is also a Catholic church right down the road from the school. Do I need to go through RCIA to be confirmed? Should I just start attending Mass at the church down the road? I guess I'm just trying to figure out what my next step should be, since it has been nearly 10 years since I have been to Mass. I just know in my heart that this is something I have to do.
Any advice/guidance will be highly appreciated!
