I have a cousin who has married a mormon and converted to the mormon church (from catholicism). I have done much research into the mormon church, so I have a pretty good idea of what they believe. Recently our grandfather has passed away and their practice of baptizing the dead has really hit home for me. I am aware that the Catholic Church does not view the mormon baptism as valid and was told by my parish priest not to worry about my grandfather as he had been properly baptized into the Catholic Church and he could not be rebaptized mormon after his death. My questions is…is there any official church stance or any information you can give me from the catholic perspective on this practice of baptizing the dead? Any information will be appreciated.
