  • You can't just walk into a Catholic church and convert. You have months of classes to take first.

  • I agree with notpanicking. In my experience to convert to catholicism you have to take months of classes, then recieve first communion and then be confirmed. However if you are serious about converting to catholicism it will be worth it. I know in Judaism you have to take classes and have an emersion but Im not really sure. The best thing would be to talk to a preist, rabbi, paster or what have you and find out what you should do.

  • Most religions expect you to take courses/classes before baptizing/converting fully. They'll want certain commitments from you like attending church weekly, reading scriptures daily, prayer,etc.

    Just depends on what religion you are interested in and contacting those who can help you find the schedules and make appts,etc.
