Hi, guys —

I am Anglican and would like to become Roman Catholic.

  • Do I really need to convert or can I just receive Holy Communion at a Catholic Mass?

Eric replied:

Hi, Mark —

Yes, you need to go through Catechism classes to learn the Catholic faith, and when you are ready to accept everything the Catholic Church teaches as revealed by God, you will be confirmed in the faith and receive your First Eucharist.

Contact your local priest for details and to sign up.

Welcome to the Church!


Mike replied:

Hi Mark,

In addition to what my colleague Eric said, I would encourage you to consider buying a cheap copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to learn everything we believe as Catholics.

and as Eric said . . . Welcome to the Church!
