Quick Q & A

My husband of 31 years was baptized a Baptist but has not practiced that faith since he was a teenager. He has been going to church with me throughout our marriage. We have raised our three children as Catholics. Is there some way for him to become a Catholic without going through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)?

He should go through the RCIA because it will expand his knowledge of what the Church believes and why.

It will also help him see from a new perspective to what kind of service lived faith leads.
