I grew up in a Protestant church, but converted. I was confirmed in the Church almost a year ago.
Anyway, the topic of baptism came up in conversation with my mother last night and I learned something shocking! My mother told me that she went through her church’s classes for parents in preparation to have their baby baptized, filled out all the paperwork etc…but when the day came for me to be baptized I had a fever and was never actually baptized.:eek: In that church, because they don’t view baptism as salvific they only held baptisms once a year and when my mom missed it, she just didn’t bother to have it done the next year!!! But the church went ahead and made out a baptism certificate just like I had been baptized because they did it at the end of the classes, so when I contacted the church last year for a copy of my baptismal certificate, they sent me one.
So I’ve never been baptized!!!:eek: What is done in cases like these? Am I going to have to go through RCIA all over again? Will they just baptize me as soon as possible and confirm me? This is so deeply troubling. I can’t believe this happened!!!
