Spain: joint recognition of Catholic, Anglican baptisms

Catholic World News - February 24, 2011

The Spanish bishops and the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church-- a branch of the Anglican Communion-- have issued a joint statement on the mutual recognition of baptism. The document recognizes the validity of baptisms conferred by pouring and immersion using the Trinitarian formula; in line with recent Vatican documents, it recognizes that baptisms administered by “collective aspersion” (sprinkling) are invalid.
