My husband and I converted from Anglicanism, and we were confirmed in the Church at Easter 2011 in City 1. We then moved to City 2, and the two older children began attending our local Catholic school. In the application process, we submitted their baptismal certificates and a letter, explaining we had converted, from our priest in City 1. All went well.
It is now time for our third child to apply for school, but our current priest in City 2 says that she is not Catholic, as she has not been received by the Church. He himself says he is not sure of the process for receiving a young - four years old - child into the Church, and he has not had much luck with finding out. To be clear, she has already been baptised in the Anglican faith, so that is out as an option.
My husband and I presumed that our children were Catholic, once we both converted and they began attending mass weekly with us. Indeed, our eldest has had her first Holy Communion. Are our two younger children Catholic since we are? If not, what is the process for them to become Catholic, given they are too young for First Holy Communion and have already been baptised?
