Marco Rubio's faith, a timeline.

The timeline of Sen. Marco Rubio's "faith journey" as provided by his office, which says it will be part of his upcoming book.

  • His family moved to Las Vegas in 1979 and joined the Mormon church when Marco was about 8 years old.
  • While still in Las Vegas, by the time he was 12, he and his family left the church and resumed attending Catholic services.
  • He received his first communion at the age of 13 in December 1984 in Las Vegas.
  • The next year, the family returned to Miami, where Marco was confirmed, married and had all his children baptized in the Catholic church in subsequent years.
  • In 2002, Marco and his wife began attending the First Baptist Church of Perrine (subsequently renamed Christ Fellowship). While they were never baptized or registered as members, they attended regularly.
  • Around 2005 Marco began to return to his Catholic roots.
  • He enjoys the sermons and the excellent children’s ministry at Christ Fellowship, and still attends often.
  • Rubio is a practicing Roman Catholic who attends mass regularly at both St. Joseph's In Washington, D.C. and St. Louis's in Miami where he is a parishioner.

Questions arose today after revelations that Rubio was briefly Mormon.

And he may be Baptized again Mormon after his death - you never know with those guys. Look, I've said that Mitt Romney needs to play the Mormon card because he's really got nothing else going for him and it might show a little passion.


Now he can add Rubio to his ticket and make it an all (Baptized) Mormon ticket. That's unique to American politics and the really can't seem to do any worse these days. Take a risk, Mitt.
