My fiance and I are both ‘Catholic’ in belief but he was never baptised, and I have not been confirmed. We both went to a Catholic school but maybe don’t know the ins-and-outs of the Bible as we would need to.
We have talked about it a lot, and have decided we would like him to be baptised before the wedding and myself to be confirmed so that the wedding is ‘sacramental’ not just ‘natural’ (I know I don’t really have to be confirmed, but I have always wanted to do it and it makes sense for us to do both together). It means a lot to both of us – especially to me – but we don’t know a whole lot about the process.
I’ve spoken briefly to one priest but he was a bit vague. I established that we would both have to go to Journey of Faith meetings once a week for an undetermined length of time… does anyone know how long we would have to go for?
Are there any costs involved?
Does anyone know if we would be able to be confirmed and baptised together? and does anyone know what the ceremony is like?
I’m going to speak to the priest (or another priest) soon but we can’t start the journey until the end of March 2013 as we’re currently living in a different city but will be moving back to our home city at that time. If anyone can help me out in the meantime i’d appreciate it!
We’re in the UK if that makes any difference…?
