Hello everyone! I’m new here and wasn’t sure where to post this, so please forgive me if I’m in the wrong forum.
My husband and I were both Baptized Catholic, and I made my First Communion at eight years old. However, during our adolescence, although always loving and believing in God and Jesus, we grew apart from the church (as sometimes happens with teenagers).
We were married by a justice of the peace six years ago, but a few months ago had a conversation in which we both expressed our desire to return to the church and living as Catholics. We have found a church that seems perfect for us, and will be going next Sunday to speak to the Priest there and inquire about doing the RCIA program. We want more than anything to be re-married in the Catholic church and raise our future children (which we pray God will bless us with very soon!) in the Catholic faith.
Whether or not we’ll both have to be re-baptized into the faith is just one of the many questions we have for the priest, but we were wondering if anyone who has gone through RCIA themselves wouldn’t mind telling us what we can expect? We’re very excited about all of this, as it feels like we’re starting our lives for a second time!
Thank you for any replies you all may have…they’re much appreciated.
