I just signed up to ask this question... I wasn't sure where to post it, I hope it is okay to ask here.
I have never been a regular church-goer, but I feel that a big part of that is not being raised in an immediate family of church-goers and now, a bit later in life, not feeling like I am part of a church. I am considering going through the RCIA as I would like to be more involved with the Catholic church, but I know there is the issue of whether or not I have been baptized.
My great grandmother was a devout Catholic, and my grandmother is as well. My mother was raised Catholic and received her First Communion, but she stopped going to church sometime in her teens. The story my grandmother told me is that my great grandmother knew that my mother did not go to church and she could not stand to think that her great granddaughter would not be baptized. So she drew a bath, prayed and asked God to bless the water, and baptized me herself while she and my grandmother prayed.
Obviously I have no record of this or even a memory, other than the story I was told. Is that sufficient grounds to be able to say "Yes, I am baptized"? If so, can I say that I was baptized Catholic? Will I be required to provide some kind of "proof"?
I've googled for answers but I can't find any decisive and clear answer.
