Hi, guys —

I'm recently married. My wife is Catholic and I have started attending Mass with her and feel at home in the Church.

My question is about converting. I was baptized at birth in a mainline Protestant church (Congregationalist), and have gone through their confirmation proceedings when I was a teen.

By accident, I also received Communion in a Catholic Church once when I was a teenager.

I now realize I should not have done that. I have never been to Confession.

  • What steps would I have to take to convert?

There must be an intriguing story behind your accidental Communion. Essentially, you would be received into the Church, usually after RCIA .

I would talk to a priest at your local parish about enrolling.

Best wishes and God bless.

Hi Andrew,

Along with Bob's reply, I wanted to share with you my Favorites page and Scripture Passages pages. They are the most popular set of pages on my web site.

I have another web site dedicated to the Early Church Fathers that may interest you as well:
