Apologies if this is in the wrong section.
I am currently helping my wife into the church. I myself was in RCIA. However, my journey started by knocking on a priest’s door and sitting down each evening. I didn’t know what RCIA was.
I’m not sure if it’s a formal process or whether baptism and confirmation can be completed following a few meetings, sitting down with a priest, with my help at home, too? My reasoning is that my wife wants to be baptised sooner rather than later- and of course, who are we to withold that- it’s a great thing!
The next RCIA course doesn’t start until late this year. Would a priest usually take someone under his wing? Is it permissible?
