Hi, guys —

I am not a Catholic but am married to one and was baptized after our Marriage. We were not married in a Catholic Church.

  • Are we required to be married in a Catholic Church before I can convert to Catholicism?

Bob replied:

Dear Andrea,

I am not totally clear on your situation, but in any case, anyone can convert at any time without any obstacles.

If your spouse married outside the Church, without permission, then you should get your Marriage validated by the Church soon anyway.

Peace,

Bob Kirby

Your husband's pastor can guide you on the appropriate steps to take.

I used to run a free program that sent Catechisms to seeking Protestants and non-Christians but no longer have the financial or operational means to do this anymore. Nevertheless, if you wish to go deeper, consider buying a cheap copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to learn everything we believe as Catholics.
