Hi, guys —

I was baptized United Pentecostal in my young teens. I am now in my late 20s and want to be baptized Catholic.

I was only baptized the first time because my parents, who are also United Pentecostals, insisted on it. I never wanted to be Pentecostal.

  • Can I get baptized Catholic?



  { Though my parents insisted on it, if I never wanted to be a Pentecostal, can I now be a Catholic? }

Eric replied:

Dear Danika,


Go to your local parish and ask to enroll in RCIA (classes usually form in early Fall).


Bob replied:


You can become a Catholic anytime.

Among Protestants and Catholics there is only one Baptism, both are valid (with a few exceptions by those that practice a flawed form) so, your Baptism is valid.

Now, you merely need to be received into the Catholic Church — and for that you should have some formation. You should contact a Catholic parish and ask about enrolling in a RCIA program, which will lead you to reception into the Church and the sacraments including Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist.

I'm sure God will bless you abundantly and bring you home to this wonderful Church.
