Adult baptism

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: On the day of the Rite of Election, do only those who are going to receive all three sacraments sign the book? Or do those sign who are going to be baptized but not receive first communion?


A: No adult can be baptized without receiving first communion. If an adult is not able to receive first communion—for example, because of an unresolved marriage situation—that adult cannot be baptized.
