I am a Christian and have been baptised before.
I would like to be received in communion with the Catholic Church. How can I proceed?

The Catholic Church recognises valid Christian baptism as baptism with water using the Trinitarian formula (in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). Where your baptism is recognised as valid, you will not need to be baptised but will join the RCIA journey as a Christian candidate seeking reception into full communion with the Catholic Church. Where after investigation there is still doubt regarding the validity of the baptism you have received, you will be baptised conditionally.

I am a Catholic and I am thinking of returning to the faith. Where do I begin?
You can speak to a friend or a priest, or answer the invitation by speaking to someone from Landings.
