I am in the RCIA program and my church does confessions face to face in an open room. Would it be ok for me to request the confession to be in a confession box or go to a nearby church that does confessions in them. I am not at all comfortable with doing the confession face to face.
Also, I was baptized by my grandfather, who was a minister, in the womb before birth. The reason for this was because he was dying of brain cancer and my family wanted him to do it. Is this a valid baptism.
